Iranian-backed Iraqi militias form coalition ahead of parliamentary elections

“Ahead of Iraq’s May parliamentary elections, Iranian-backed militias announced the formation of a coalition called al Fatah al Mubin (Manifest Victory). It is led by Hadi al Ameri, chief of the Badr Organization and current Iraqi parliamentarian, who has close ties to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Qods Force chief Qassem Soleimani called Ameri a ‘living martyr’ last year. The IRGC-backed coalition is poised to shape the next Iraqi government, highlighting the new political order.”
