The al-Abbas's (p) Fighting Squad establishes a rescue unit.

On the Sunday afternoon 23rd Dhu al-Hijjah 1440 AH corresponding to August 25, 2019, the opening ceremony of the Military Rescue Unit of the Squad's doctor unit, was held in the headquarters of the al-Abbas's (p) Fighting Squad (26th Brigade / Popular Mobilization).

The opening ceremony included the speech of the Assistant Secretary General of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine and the Supervisor of the Squad; Sheikh Maytham Al-Zaidi, in which he highlighted the following:

- We are the only military force that is prepared after its victory, that is, it did not go through the preparation phase first, but opened fire immediately after its formation, and we are now in the preparation phase, and among its entitlements is to activate the military rescue unit.

- This unit is established to ensure the safety of the fighters to return from the battlefields to their families unharmed and safe, which is at the heart of the guidelines of the Supreme Religious Authority taken from the Holy Quran in the revival of the souls with the verse: {And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.} (5:32).

- The culture of rescue is a general human culture that has wide fields in war and peace. Sometimes we need to rescue the drowning and it is also important to provide effort and aid during the Ziyarat seasons in which millions of visitors participate.

- Al-Abbas's (p) Squad is continuing to complete and develop all its joints and formations, where many of its forces will participate in the Popular Mobilization Commission - officers' course. And we will also contribute to the activation of the formation of the popular mobilization according to the new orders.

- We directed the academy to focus on organizing the developmental courses for all units of the Squad, according to a training curriculum during this year to develop their capabilities and potentials, especially in the technological aspect, because today's wars are technological wars.

- During the past nine months, the Squad worked to develop its capabilities and provided (the al-Kafeel developed tank) which is admired by the military forces and the Popular Mobilization Commission.

- We are committed to supporting the Iraqi state and contributing to the building of its security institutions. And we are a supporting part of the strong military institutions and not a substitute for them.

- Our constant thanks to the unlimited support provided by the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine for the Squad, because it kept the Squad from collapsing but made it stand in front of all the challenges.

- The holy shrine continues to provide most of the material and moral support to it, and this does not mean that we forget the role of the state, as well as the brave Iraqi army, which provided great support to it.

- The Popular Mobilization Commission gives us some support that we hope will reach a level where the squad says it is not oppressed.

- The Al-Abbas's (p) Squad did not deploy any new fighter.

- What happened in the past days is to provide financial allocation to those who were deployed by the Commission but without specification.

- We will continue to demand the deployment of all our fighters because they represent all the components of the people, and the concerned parties should see this fairly.

- The Squad, today, is the largest formation in controlling areas on the ground, and during the duty of securing the convoys of pilgrims, it controlled more than (200 km). Noting that hundreds of volunteers from our reserve forces have participated in this duty.

- We have a larger duty to secure the Ziyarat Ashura in which millions of visitors participate, where more than 5,000 reserve troops have been called up.
