BAGHDAD (Dispatches) – The U.S. military forces stationed in occupied bases in al-Anbar province use the Daesh terrorists in disguise of ordinary people to target the Iraqi forces in desert areas of the region. Head of Badr Organization's Office in al-Anbar Qusai al-Anbari was quoted by the Arabic-language al-Ma'aloumeh news website as saying that the U.S. forces deployed in Ein al-Assad and al-Habaniyeh bases in al-Anbar deserts in Western Iraq are using a new method to attack the Iraqi security forces. He added that they disguise the ISIL terrorists as shepherds and tribesmen to launch on against the Iraqi security forces, Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi popular forces) and civilians in al-Anbar desert. Al-Anbari said that the U.S. forces have even prepared livestock for the Daesh terrorists to disguise them as shepherds. The head of Badr organization's office in al-Anbar province had also last month warned of the American forces' suspicious moves in the Western deserts of the province, saying that the U.S. was aiding the terrorists stationed in the region. Al-Ma'aloumeh quoted al-Anbari as saying at the time that the Americans were assisting a terrorist group called Ghosts of Desert in desert areas of al-Anbar, adding that they had been airdropping foodstuff packages for the Daesh from helicopters hovering over the region in the past few days. He also warned that the U.S. army was training hundreds of Daesh terrorists in al-Anbar province after relocating them from Syria to Iraq to prepare them for a new round of insecurities in the country.
