A regiment from Al-Abbas Combat Division (ACD), a Shia militia loyal to the Iraqi federal government, joined the fight against ISIS in Iraq. The Shia fighters will be positioned on the front lines in the towns of Balad, Ramadi and the outskirts of Kirkuk. A TTM contributor travelled with ACD fighters from the southern city of Karbala to their new front line positions and filmed them on their new posts in the town of Balad, 80km north of Baghdad.
