TEHRAN, Jan. 03 (MNA) – According to some reports, Hadi al-Ameri has been announced to replace the Commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes, who was assassinated leaving Baghdad airport by car early Friday morning when he was targeted and assassinated.

Hadi Al-Amiri is the former Iraqi Minister of Transportation and the head of the Badr Organization, which was the military wing of the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council. He is a member of the Iraqi parliament under the United Iraqi Alliance list, which mainly represents religious Shia parties.
