MESOPOTAMIA NEWS INTEL IRAQ : Does the PMU need its own air force? – by Seth Frantzman  7 Sept 2019

SOUTH KURDISTAN (IRAQ)

An odd report from PMU sent Iraq’s politics tumbling,

Contradicting statements by Iraqi PMF (Hashd) that it is forming an Air Force & then denying it are seen as an administrative struggle between PMF Council Chairman Fayyadh & Deputy Chairman Muhandis.

In response to PMU Deputy Mohandis’ statement earlier today, #Iraq Prime Minister’s Office [unsurprisingly] rejects the proposal of a PMU Air Force.

That’s not exactly shocking news, but Mohandis has shown his hand – #Iran is far from stepping back; its plan expansion continues. pic.twitter.com/OAGHyzCKmk

Muqtada Al #Sadr is angry, because Al #Hashd Al Shaabi has announced to build an Islamic Shia Air Force in #Iraq against the terrorist attacks of his Zionist US brothers! pic.twitter.com/MFQIrNuTW9
