ERBIL — Twitter on Friday shut down an account attributed to a senior Iraqi militia commander after he was sanctioned by the US recently.
The Twitter account of Qais Khazali, commander of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, which operates under the command of Hashd al-Shaabi, was shut down apparently in line with the Treasury Department’s sanctions which was imposed on Khazali and three other Iraqis last week.
Khazali has been among the hardliners who oppose the US influence on Iraq and the present of the US troops in the country.
He has, on different occasions, threatened to target the US forces if they stay beyond the time they are supposed to in Iraq.
