The Hashd al-Shaabi was formed upon a call by Iraq’s grand Ayatollah Ali Al Sistani in the summer of 2014 when Islamic State Terrorist Group (ISIS) captured several Iraqi provinces. Ayatollah Sistani urged civilians to take up arms and fight against the Takfiri terrorist group.

The Popular Mobilization Forces along with Iraqi army troops and Kurdish Peshmerga forces have been involved in the Mosul liberation operation. At the movement most part of Hashd al-Shaabi is consist of Shia fighters.

The parliamentary decree stipulates that members of all Iraqi ethnic and religious groups will have the right the join Hashd al-Shaabi and they will be reorganized through the army after the Mosul liberation operation.
