Iraq, possible financier of pro-Iran militias arrested

A possible financier of pro-Iran militias arrested in Iraq. The man was found at Najaf airport in possession of large quantities of Lebanese currency. The money was probably used for the operations of the Shiite groups

Iraqi security forces (ISF) arrested a probable courier of pro-Iran militias at Najaf airport. The man was found in possession of a large amount of Lebanese currency, hidden inside the suitcases. There is no official confirmation, but it is believed that the money was to be used to finance the operations and survival of Shiite groups operating in the Middle Eastern nation. His arrest deals a severe blow to the militias which, since the anniversary of the death of General Qasem Soleimani and the commander of Hashd al-Shaabi (PMF) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, have launched a real offensive against the military and Inherent Resolve in the country. In fact, since January 3, 2022, there have been numerous attacks with drones, missiles and IEDs against international assets, which do not seem to want to stop.
