Some see the army and the Popular Mobilization Forces as the two main wings of security in Iraq

Arab newspapers discussed circulating news about the release of the leader of the Popular Mobilization Forces, Qassem Musleh Al-Khafaji, according to an agreement between Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and the leaders of the Popular Mobilization Forces and the Shiite forces.

A security force had arrested al-Khafaji, the commander of western Anbar operations in the Popular Mobilization Forces, in an airdrop operation in the Dora area, southwest of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The Iraqi army said that security forces had arrested al-Khafaji, in a move security sources said was linked to attacks on a base hosting US forces.

‘Iranian network of control’

The London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper says in its editorial: “The Iraqi state retreated in front of the militias announcing the release of the leader in the Popular Mobilization Forces, Qassem Musleh … In this sense, Tehran is not satisfied with the great control it possesses over the state’s capabilities itself, whether within the state’s security and military apparatus, and within the spectrum. The vast number of politicians, leaders and officials of parties and parliamentarians. “
