IMIS militia parade

Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) have displayed their military strength in a parade at al-Rikrak village in western Mosul in an unprecedented move that asserts the participation of the sectarian militias in the Mosul operations, according to press reports.

The 17th Brigade of IMIS paraded at the frontlines of the embattled city of Mosul, according to press sources. The sources also asserted that these militias have not participated before in the operations to retake the city from ISIS terrorists.

This development comes as the joint forces that have participated in the operations to liberate Mosul have been censured for committing massacres and atrocities against Mosul' innocent civilians.
