TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Fighters from Iraq's al-Nujaba Movement, a major Shiite resistance group, have been dispatched to a town in the north-west of Iraq, near the border crossing to the town of Al-Yarubiyah in Syria.
The Nujaba movement’s specialized forces were sent to Rabia, a town which previously was under the control of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, to help the Arab country’s army and Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), also known as Hashd al-Sha'abi, boost security there.
