Leader Of Iraqi Badr Organization Warns From Kurdistan Region Independence Referendum, Condemns Hezbollah-ISIS Deal

Hadi al-Amiri

On September 4, Hadi al-Amiri, a leader of the Iraqi Badr Organization annonced in an interview with the Iraqi-Kurdish Rudaw TV network that he is against the Kurdistan Region independence referendum.

“I’m afraid that the referendum will complicated matters even further, that’s why I personally called several times upon our brothers in Kurdistan to reconsider the referendum,” Al-Amiri said. “I’m against the establishment of regional entities that are based on racial or religious bases.

Al-Amiri warned that the independence of the Kurdistan Region might lead to another armed conflict in Iraq. Moreover, he argued that it is impossible to agree upon Arabian-Kurdish borders or a Sunni-Shiite borders in Iraq.

We [meaning all sides in Iraq] will resort to weapons [meaning armed confrontation] if we established racial or sectarian based regional entities,” al-Amiri noted. “We will disagree … we don’t have a civilized status, a disagreement could lead us to armed confrontation”.

Al-Amiri also criticized and condemned the recent withdrawal deal between ISIS and Hezbollah that allowed 300 ISIS fighters to withdraw from the Syrian-Lebanese border in the direction of the Syrian-Iraqi border. Al-Amiri added that his organization is not aware of the content of Hezbollah-ISIS agreement.

The agreement to move ISIS from an area to another inside the Syrian territories is a Syrian matter that we don’t intervene in it. However, we opposed what we heard in the news about moving them to al-Bukamal area, and we will not accept this,” Al- Amiri said.

In the end of the interview al-Amiri said that the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) should remain after the defeat of ISIS. Al-Amiri stressed that the PMU existence is important for Iraq future.

    Iraq was not happy about the deal because ISIS was shipped over to the Syria-Iraq border, near al-Bukamal. Al-Bukamal has always threatened al-Qaim, and this could lead to bombings in Baghdad by ISIS who secretly crossed the border. Another reason is lack of information about deal.

    The ” ISIS – Hezbollah deal” that he refers to , was more of a Lebanese and Hezbollah – ISIS deal .
    It was largely a Lebanese trade .
    Any word on what has happened to that ISIS group .
