crowd has lost so much the assassination of Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and the American strike, influential.
What is the future of the popular crowd and armed militias in Iraq after the resounding blow that hit the leader of the crowd, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and Qasim Soleimani, the spiritual father of the extremist militias?
Several scenarios, which are reported by research and studies centers in the world about the expected scenarios for these terrorist groups …
between a scenario of disintegration in the absence of the engineer, and another that jumps to his presidency Hadi al-Amiri or Muqtada al-Sadr, whoever gets Iranian approval and can unite the armed factions.
Various scenarios revolve ..
The assassination of the deputy chief of the Popular Mobilization Forces – the terrorist – Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, represents a great loss for the crowd, not only because he is the vice president of the organization, but because he is the backbone of this institution and armed factions. It appears – according to a report published by Al-Monitor – that the Shiite populist cleric, Muqtada al-Sadr, is trying to play the role of leadership over the factions of the popular crowd in the absence of its deputy head, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, who was “the first arch enemy of the United States of America,” according to the description of the researcher at the Washington Institute. Mike Knights. Therefore, Muqtada al-Sadr called on all factions to stage a million demonstration against America, and he responded to his request.
On the other hand, the leader of the “Badr” militia, Hadi al-Amiri, is conducting shuttle meetings between Baghdad and Tehran to meet the leaders of the factions and unify their speech, which raises the possibility of his nomination for a leadership position in the crowd in the future.
However, the reality is that the “popular crowd” in Iraq lost its basic strength after the death of Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, who was assassinated on January 3 by the United States of America with the Iranian Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani upon their exit from Baghdad International Airport.
A leader in the popular crowd revealed that, there is a state of chaos and confusion within the popular crowd today, so his leaders and his factions did not meet until a week after the killing of the engineer, his absence will affect a lot, because he is the only party that no one inside the crowd disagreed with and obeys everyone, because he is a leader with a jihadist history Taweel !!
Accordingly, several questions arise regarding the future of the “popular crowd” after the engineer, including: “Is the crowd divided after it?” Or “Does he face more challenges than he was facing while he was?”
Professor of political science, Ihsan al-Shammari said: “The killing of the engineer constitutes a strong blow to the crowd, because he is a field leader and a spiritual father of the factions in it, and he is the first concerned with the details and events of the popular crowd. He added: “We will notice the depth of differences during the coming days, because there are leaders in the crowd that see that they have the right to play a greater role at the level of the authority and armed factions, and this may put the crowd’s future in front of disintegration and melting.”
According to Ihsan al-Shammari, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, who have had positive ties with leaders in the crowd, may succeed in controlling the rhythm of these differences, as they did in previous times.
The professor of political science at the University of Baghdad, Adel Bedawi, during an interview with Al-Monitor, noted that “the future of the popular crowd after the engineer will go into weakness, due to the competition that results from many factions to reach the leadership center, as the engineer represented the central leadership to curb the competition.” He said: “His loss cannot be compensated by another person who manages the balances in the popular crowd or within the resistance faction system, as well as the balances between the crowd and the resistance, as well as the crowd and the Revolutionary Guards, these are complex balances that were managed efficiently by the engineer, there will be future problems in the crowd.”
The departure of the engineer was a shock to the institution (the Popular Mobilization), which he built, structure, and known its details for 5 years, not only this, but even the armed factions not affiliated with the crowd, such as “Hezbollah Brigades” and “Al-Nujaba”, were also affected by the loss of the engineer’s symbolism The terrorist ..
The question that concerns everyone in the Iraqi street now, can the thirsty Iraqi popular protests obscure these armed militias and push the Iraqi rulers to get rid of them and announce their dismantling?
Will the street sound stronger to prosecute the crowd criminals and push them to the dustbin of history?
