IMIS 30th Brigade declines to withdraw from Nineveh despite PM orders


The 30th Brigade, affiliated to the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS), has declined to withdraw from Nineveh province despite Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi's recent decree.

Earlier, Abd al-Mahdi issued a decree ordering IMIS to fully integrate into the armed forces or join political groups.

A statement issued by the prime minister’s office said: “No faction is allowed to work secretly or openly outside these instructions.”

An official in Nineveh province criticized the 30th Brigade, saying that its decision is an unexpected decision considered as insurgence against the prime minister and the Iraqi government.
