TEHRAN (FNA)– Informed sources in Iraq disclosed that the US has trained tens of Iraqi army forces within the framework of ‘Tiger Unit’ to assassinate the senior commanders of Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi Volunteer Forces).
The Arabic website of Skypress quoted the sources as saying that the US forces have trained nearly 400 elite Iraqi forces and formed the Tiger Unit with 50 of them to assassinate Hashd al-Shaabi commanders, especially those who are opposed to the US army’s presence in Iraq.
“These forces have been trained by the US intelligence officers and technical engineers to find the location of all commanders too,” they added.
The report came after Commander of Asa’eb al-Haq Movement affiliated to Iraqi popular forces of Hashd al-Shaabi said last month that the US forces have been trying hard to evacuate ISIL commanders from the besieged city of Tal Afar West of Mosul.
After photos surfaced in the media displaying US forces assisting ISIL terrorists, Javad al-Talaybawi said that the Americans are planning to take ISIL commanders away from Tal Afar that is under the Iraqi forces’ siege.
In the meantime, member of Iraqi Parliament’s Security and Defense Commission Iskandar Watut called for a probe into photos and footages displaying US planes airdropping aid packages over ISIL-held regions.
Watut further added that we have witnessed several times that US planes dropped packages of food stuff, arms and other necessary items over ISIL-held regions, and called on Iraq’s air defense to watch out the US-led coalition planes.
Eyewitnesses disclosed in February that the US military planes helped the ISIL terrorists in Tal Afar region West of Mosul.
“We saw several packages dropped out of a US army aircraft in the surrounding areas of the city of Tal Afar in Western Nineveh province and six people also came out of a US plane in the ISIL-controlled areas,” the Arabic-language media quoted a number of eyewitnesses as saying.
Tal Afar city has been under the siege of the Iraqi volunteer forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) for about three months now and the efforts by the ISIL terrorists to help their comrades besieged in Tal Afar have failed so far.
The news comes as the Iraqi army had reported that the US air force has been helping the ISIL terrorists in areas controlled by the terrorist group.
The Iraqi army says that the US army is trying to transfer the ISIL commanders trapped in areas besieged by the Iraqi army to safe regions.
Canadian independent journalist Eva Bartlett is the object of a smear campaign by Canada’s mainstream media. Listen to what she has to say and then decide who is telling the truth.
The mainstream media denies the existence of terrorists linked to Al Qaeda.
According to mainstream sources, there were no terrorists in Aleppo.
Al Qaeda and the Islamic State are supported by US-NATO, Saudi Arabia and Israel. They are the state-sponsors of terrorism. We are dealing with a war of aggression. Eva Bartlett provides detailed evidence of war crimes.
The following video interview by Global Research TV was conducted in Montreal in January in the context of Eva Bartlett’s Canada speaking tour.
It is followed by her presentation at the Montreal venue. (M.Ch, GR Editor)

“All is fair in love and war” – where nothing is out of bounds and all the rules of ‘hard play’ are acceptable. The story of Muammar Gaddafi vs. West reminded me of this saying – it is one of the ultimate betrayal and manipulation. Once upon a time, Libya was every Capitalist’s nightmare. Its people didn’t exist simply to pay the bills – there were no rental costs, there were no electricity and utilities costs, education and medical care was free. Much like the Soviet Union, for a number of decades Libya was a flourishing socialist state.
But the West has a serious issue with authoritarian leaders. Current democracies require disposable leadership, in order to obliterate responsibility. In a parallel reality however – a “leader” is not one who spends…

A security source revealed that the al-Hashd al-Shaabi forces killed one of the ISIS Emirs, west of Tal afar, Baghdad Times reported on Thursday.
The source said, “Forces from al-Hashd al-Shaabi managed to kill one of the ISIS Emirs, known as Abu Dujana al-Tunsi, west of Tal Afar District.”
“The security forces were also able to detonate a booby-trapped vehicle, kill two members of the ISIS, in addition to seizing two booby-trapped armored vehicles in Ayn al-Agha Village, west of Tal Afar,” the source added on condition of anonymity.
Earlier today, Iraqi forces took full control over the strategic Mosul Airport in the west of the city, forcing ISIS militants out of the facility, Iraqi News reported.
Yemeni forces have launched an operation against Riyadh-backed militiamen loyal to the former government, killing scores of them, including the commander of Saudi-led Emirati troops in Yemen.
While people on both sides of the phoney left/right divide squabble over terrorist boogeymen and Trump’s CIA chief gives Saudi Arabia an award for “counter”terrorism, everyone has lost sight of the bigger picture: The blithering morons who are the face of international terror are aided, funded, controlled and handled by the intelligence agencies. It is all part of the con to get you scared of your own shadow so the terror-industrial complex can laugh all the way to the bank. Today James breaks down the latest chapter in this never-ending psy-op saga.

Islam Times – Yemeni citizens are losing their lives either due to the Saudi bombardment campaign or as a result of the starvation gripping the impoverished country, a local says, denouncing the international community’s silence on the Riyadh regime’s deadly war.
One of lawmakers, investigator Hamizai Lali said;
“We are convinced that one soldier cannot kill so many people in two villages within one hour at the same time, and the 16 civilians, most of them children and women, have been killed by the two groups,”
“If the international community does not play its role in punishing the perpetrators, the Wolesi Jirga [parliament] would declare foreign troops as occupying forces,”
Witnesses had previously said they saw around 20 drunk soldiers shooting and not 1, another man even said he was a revenge attack.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who asked for NATO troops to leave villages yesterday has said;
“This has been going on for too long. This is by all means the end of the rope here,”
On Wednesday, Wikileaks released new evidence of US President-elect Donald Trump’s assertion that Barack Obama was the founder of ISIS – a leaked audio of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s meeting with members of the Syrian opposition at the Dutch Mission of the UN on September 22. The audio also is an evidence of the fact that mainstream media colluded with the Obama’s administration in order to push the narrative for regime change in Syria, hiding the truth about arming and funding ISIS by the US, as it exposed a 35 minute conversation that was omitted by CNN.
Kerry admits that the primary goal of the Obama’s administration in Syria was regime change and the removal of Syrian President Bahar al-Assad, as well as that Washington didn’t calculate that Assad would turn to Russia for help.
In order to achieve this goal, the White…

Yemeni Army’s missile units targeted Saudi-led coalition forces in the Southeastern province of Ta’iz, killing or wounding at least 150 of them, local sources said on Thursday.
The sources said the Yemeni Army carried out the attack on a gathering of the Saudi-led forces in Sha’ab al-Jin near Bab al-Mandeb region, inflicting over 150 casualties on them; FNA reported.
They further added that the attack also ended in at least ten military vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition forces being destroyed.
The local sources also noted that among the casualties were militants who were recently transferred to the port city of Aden, located 170km to Bab al-Mandeb, on a Turkish plane.
The contingent of Saudi-led forces arrived in the strategic region just two days ago, apparently for a major military assault on the Yemeni forces.
On Saturday, the Yemeni security sources disclosed that the Turkish plane has transferred Al-Qaeda terrorists from Syria’s Northern city of Aleppo to Aden and evacuated wounded pro-Saudi militias to medical treatment centers outside the country when returning to Turkey.
“The Turkish airplane landed at Aden International Airport to transfer the pro-Saudi mercenaries wounded in the Yemeni forces’ offensives in Ta’iz province for treatment in Turkish hospitals,” the Arabic-language al-Ahd news website quoted informed sources as saying.
The sources noted that some 150 al-Qaeda terrorists stepped out of the plane as soon as it landed, adding that they had been relocated from Syria’s Aleppo to Aden.
The Yemeni army and popular forces boosted their military gains in Shabwah province, particularly in Asilan warfront, and injured a senior Saudi-led coalition military commander in the city of Sanaa.
