Haj Qassem and Mohandis Abu Mahdi
Iraq Government had officially requested Iranian military help to counter terrorism. IRGC Quds Force commander Haj Qassem Soleimani was helping Iraq government becaause of the request.
Abu Mahdi Mohandis was leading Hashd al Shaabi or Popular Mobilisation Force that too was helping Iraq government against Daesh terrorists.
