After the end of the war against ISIS terrorists, and ousting them from Iraq, Iraqis have expressed their concern from the lingering presence of the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS), especially after the government had claimed that their sole purpose was to aid the Iraqi forces in their war against terrorism.
Many Iraqis say that the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi will not dare to dismantle these terrorist militias.
Analysts told The Baghdad Post that the Prime Minister refrain from doing that measure as these militias were formed by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)'s Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani, whom Abadi cannot oppose even if the decision concerns Iraq's internal affairs.
They added that even after these terrorist militias have committed numerous human rights violations and were implicit in mass genocide crimes against Sunnis, Kurds and other minorities and accused of preventing the return of the internally displaced civilians to their homes in the Sunni governorates, Abadi did not dare to punish them or stop their crimes.
The analysts further stated that Abadi is fully aware of IMIS crimes, but doesn't dare to oppose them or their leader Qasem Soleimani.
Abadi knows that IMIS' purpose in Iraq has seized to exist, but he cannot provoke their sponsor in Iran, as it has a massive influence over Iraq's political arena, especially as the elections date is approaching.
