The Death of Fadl al-Barwari

The U.S. Embassy is saddened by the news of the death of Fadl al-Barwari, a hero of the battle of Mosul and, as commander of the famed Golden Division, one of the key military leaders in the defeat of Da’esh in Iraq. Al-Barwari was a dedicated Iraqi patriot, a fearless fighter, and a man who devoted his life to building a strong, peaceful Iraq.

The Embassy offers its condolences to Mr. Al-Barwari’s family and to his comrades in arms. We commend their commitment to Iraq and to a more peaceful future.
