Iraqi Government Denies U.S. Claim of Cooperation against Shi'a Militias

The Iraqi Security Media Cell (SMC), the anti-ISIS propaganda arm of the Iraqi government, denied that it is cooperating with the U.S. in targeting Iraqi militia elements responsible for the attacks on U.S. bases. The U.S. has been declaring this cooperation.
