Popular Mobilisation Forces

The Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) is a coalition of Iranian-backed Shia militias that was established in the year 2014 to counter Islamic State. It later went on to become a part of the Iraqi Security Forces. Some of this group’s component militias are considered as terrorist groups by several states, while the others are accused of being involved in sectarian violence.

Thousands of Iraqi paramilitary fighters marched at a military base in eastern Iraq to mark seven years since the formation of the PMF. This event was attended by the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.
