US plans to remove Iran-backed IMIS from Iraqi cities: MP

The parliament's security and defense committee member Ali Jabar revealed on Sunday an American plan to remove Iran-backed IMIS in Iraq from the western provinces.

The US forces at Ayn al-Asad base in Anbar and other western provinces are planning to remove IMIS forces from these provinces, Jabar said, adding that "these schemes come after the numerous violations committed by Shiite militias against the dwellers of these provinces."

He added that US forces are trying to remove militias from their bases and areas where the forces exist in Anbar, Nineveh and Salahuddin cities.

US trucks loaded with military equipment moved from Jordan toward Iraq to establish a US base, without revealing the reason behind the move, an informed source in Anbar revealed on Wednesday.
