Syrian MP: We Would Welcome Iraqi Militia to Fight ISIS in Syria

AlMasdarNews reports: A Syrian parliamentarian on Saturday said that Syria would welcome the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) to fight ISIS terrorists in Syria only days after several leaders of the mostly-Shi’a militia said they would fight ISIS outside of Iraq.

“The Syrian People’s Council welcomes any decision from President Bashar al-Assad regarding the entry of the PMU to the country’s territories to join military forces in the liberation operations against the criminal groups existing there,” said Mahmoud Bokhadjar, a parliament member.

“Engaging the PMU on Syrian soil will help win the battle faster and preserve stability of both countries after securing the common borders,” said Syrian MP Bokhadjar.

Only last week, Hadi al-Ameri, the secretary general of Badr Organization, one of the militias under the PMU umbrella, said the militia’s leaderships had “received an invitation from President Bashar al-Assad to enter Syria after Iraq is liberated.”
