TEHRAN, Mar. 15 (MNA) – Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), better known as Hashd al-Sha'abi, has thwarted a suicide attack on Iraqi citizens in Al-Anbar Governate.

According to Ghasem Mosleh, a senior PMU commander, the terrorist move was foiled on Sunday in the city of al-Qa’im in western Anbar Governate through vigilance of the resistance group’s fighters, Mawazin News Agency reported.

He said in a statement, "After receiving confidential information that terrorists were preparing to carry out a terrorist operation in Al-Qa’im against the security forces and citizens, the forces discovered and confiscated an explosive belt for the operation, along with other explosives.”

Mosleh emphasized, “Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi fighters vigilantly and cautiously followed the confidential information related to the terrorists' planning and nipped their plot in the bud.”

Earlier, Ahmad al-Mahlawi, the governor of al-Qa’im city, warned about the formation of small clusters of ISIL terrorist group’s elements in the desert areas and their efforts to destabilize the western part of the country.
