On january 3rd u.s. troops targeted the iranian holy city brigade commander, kasem suleimani, and the no.2 leader of the people's mobilization army, muhadis. U.S. special forces aboard the V-22 Osprey raid captured Suleimani's assistant and deputy in Iraq, Hadi-Emily.
Hadi-Emiri, the leader of Iraq's Badr forces, is considered the most powerful man in Iraq's post-IS era, with tens of thousands of armed forces. It also appears among the crowd that recently besieged the American embassy. In 2015, Bader forces took part in the war against IS. They are not part of the Iraqi army, but have acquired a large number of American weapons from the regular army to help combat IS groups. The Badr Brigade has a good combat record in central Iraq.
In March 2015, Hadi Amiri, leader of the Badr Organization and commander-in-chief of the People's Mobilization Organization, organized and directed the offensive against the Tikrit IS forces.
The Badr Brigades, a Shiite paramilitary group backed by Iran, was originally founded in the 1980s to support Iraqi forces on the Iranian side against Saddam Hussein in the Iran-Iraq war. Since 2003, the brigade has fought against U.S. forces invading Iraq and backed Assad's side in a future Syrian civil war. Since the fall of Saddam, the United States has been very concerned about the movement of the group.
After a series of U.S. military operations, some U.S. officials believe Iran and its militias may seek revenge against U.S. airstrikes. \"Do I think they're going to do something about it? Yes. They're likely to regret it. We are ready.
The chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark Militant, warned Iran and its militia groups on Thursday that trying to hit U.S. targets was like storming into a \"chainsaw\" and we were ready for a chainsaw, the Military Times website reported on Tuesday.
