The Iraqi Parliament’s security and defense committee recommended the re-formation of pro-government militias to maintain security and fight local insurgent groups, says Kurdish member of the committee Shwan Mohammed Taha.

The recommendation comes as the country is witnessing a surge in the armed actions in the capital Baghdad and several other provinces.

“The Awakening Council forces had a great role in facing the armed groups and contributed to maintaining security throughout Iraq.” Says Taha, “We support the reformation of these forces… as the security situation is seeing deterioration.”
