In continuation of the systematic and large-scale theft of Ashraf’s property in recent days by the Ashraf suppression committee in the Iraqi Prime Ministry, now Hadi Ameri, commander of the 9th Badr force, has ordered forces under his command to steal all Jeep Land Cruisers belonging to PMOI at Ashraf, which amount to over 400. Hadi Ameri has said that he needs the vehicles to once again form the Badr divisions. Coincidently, the Ashraf suppression committee and National Security are continuing the theft of Ashraf’s property.
Hadi Ameri intends to organize the remainder of his forces and use them in the sectarian war and killings in the Diyala Province. In order to start up the vehicles, Ameri has sent since Saturday, 21 June his men from the Ministry of Transportation to Ashraf to make preparations. Currently, a number of vehicles are being transferred to Badr’s offices on a daily basis. In order to not reveal the scope of this large-scale theft, the vehicles are transferred to Badr’s offices and headquarters through Ashraf’s eastern gate and some through its western gate.
The rest of the forces stationed at Ashraf, such as the Asaeb militias, intend to steal the residents’ property, yet Hadi Ameri has told them all of Ashraf’s vehicles belong to him and he intends to form the 9th Badr divisions using them.
