No surprise, [[Quds Force]] sent new guidelines to its agents in [[Badr Brigade]] to begin arming the tribal militias close to the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council (SIIC) and at same time resist disarming its own forces.
There has been a new directive from the Quds Force Headquarters in Tehran to SIIC and Amar Abdul Aziz al-Hakim, son of Abdul Aziz al-Hakim as well as Hadi al-Ameri, head of the Badr Brigade militia and a member of Iraqâ€™s parliament. In the absence of his father, Amar runs the SIIC.
It is reiterated by the Quds Force that the SIIC should prevent the efforts by the Multi-National Forces Iraq (MNF-I) from succeeding in dissolving the militias and also arming the Iraqi Sunnis tribes. Hence, the Quds Force gives specific instructions to establish new front associations for covering the forceâ€™s trials in Iraq.
