Son of senior Iraqi official works for Quds Force

  • Hadi Al-Amri's son, Mahdi, works for Quds Force and has been playing a key role in having the militias suppress the violent protests that have broken out in Iraq in the past few months.
  • Hadi himself served in the Iraqi government in the past, and was even a candidate for prime minister. He is currently the head of the Badr organization, an Iraqi militia that, since its establishment, has been known to openly support Iranian presence in Iraq. For many years, Al-Amri was considered a senior official who identified with and represented Iranian interests in the corridors of the Iraqi government.
  • Today we reveal that like his father, Mahdi Al-Amri is a loyal Quds Force soldier, specifically regarding the demonstrations in Iraq, which he has been helping to suppress by organizing violent counter-activity using various types of weapons. In the past few months, despite the coronavirus pandemic, Al-Amri Junior has been traveling between Baghdad and Tehran.
  • He said he had received instructions from his associates in Iran that he must do whatever it takes to stop the wave of demonstrations in Iraq, including killing protesters. For this purpose, Al-Amri received a great deal of money and weapons from Iran, which were transferred to Iran's proxies in Iraq and used to kill protesters there.
  • In the past, Al-Amri Junior has been heard boasting about his personal ties with late Quds Force Commander Soleimani, due, among other things, to his father's status and ties with Iran.
