“#ISIS cutting their beards and trying to hide as civilians. You really think the people you terrorised would not point you out?”
The mostly Shia PMU official handle tweeted with images of the shaven beards.
The civilian volunteer force has made serious advances as it battles to retake ISIS’ last strong hold in Iraq. The PMUs have also been notably liberating Churches and other oppressed religious groups.
