The Special Investigation Committee for the Assassination of Second-in-Command of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and Commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Lieutenant-General Qasem Soleimani have filed charges against an Iraqi telecommunications company for involvement in the incident.

Iran PressMiddle East: According to an informed source, the committee had received documents from some PMU leaders which showed a mobile phone company had allegedly provided the US Army Command at Victoria Base at Iraq Airport with mobile phone information of one of the  Al-Muhandis's associates.

The source who talked to Shafaq News added: "The US Army Command has obtained enough information about the location of the  Al-Muhandis and his meeting with Lt. Gen. Soleimani through this phone line, and this has contributed to the assassination process."

The late Commander of Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani, who had traveled to Iraq on the official invitation of the Iraqi officials, was assassinated by the US drone attack in Baghdad on January 3, 2020, along with the second-in-command of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Abu Mahdi  Al-Muhandis as well as eight companions.
