Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi, an alliance of volunteer Shia paramilitary forces, actively backed the Iraqi government’s military campaign against IS since 2014, when they were formed upon a top Shia clergy edict to counter the Sunni Jihadist group.

They won official recognition as a national force in late 2016, becoming under the command of the prime minister, who is also the supreme commander of the armed forces.
