IMIS launches Free Revolutionaries Front to target US existence in Iraq

A number of Shiite factions with the leadership of the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) have formed a new militia called “Free Revolutionaries Front” to reportedly confront U.S. existence in Iraq.

A footage circulated on social media showed a number of armed men calling themselves the “Free Revolutionaries Front” while delivering a statement next to IMIS flags.

“With the help of our people and sacrifices of our youths, the front will be able to kick the United States out of the country,” the statement said.

Observers say that Iran is resorting to a proxy war to initiate skirmishes with the United States through its terrorist arms in several countries such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Houthis in Yemen.

That could result in a series of unintended consequences and second-order effects that might lead to substantial domestic bloodshed, the resurgence of ISIS, and a revival of sectarian conflict.
