He was an American Saudi mouthpiece targeting PMF indirectly & Iran directly; also, Hashimi was a leading “security expert” member of the Iraq Advisory Council and former advisor to the US-led coalition to “defeat” the Islamic State (ISIS).

「ISとは?」過激思想と戦い続け “イラクの知性”ヒシャム・ハシミさん暗殺
 過激派組織「イスラム国」(IS)の研究で知られるイラク人の安全保障専門家、ヒシャム・ハシミさんが7月6日、首都バグダッドの自宅前で暗殺された。ハシミさんは「ISとは何か」を的確に分析し、毎日新聞の取材にもたびたび応じてくれた。イラクでISの内情を対外発信することは、命を危険にさらすことと同義だ。最期まで過激思想と闘い続けたハシミさんに哀悼の意をささげるとともに、その勇気に心から敬意を表したい。
 中東での特派員時代、ハシミさんに初めて取材したのは2014年9月だった。イラクで取材協力を受けていた通信員から「ISに詳しい研究者」として紹介を受けた。
 ISは14年6月に内戦下のシリアから進出し、イラク北部の第2の都市モスルを電撃的に制圧した。独自の「国家樹立」を宣言して、重要インフラを管理し、徴税や裁判も行っていた。
 「なぜ、過激派組織がそんなにもスムーズに統治を敷けるのか」。その問いに対して、ハシミさんは03年…

私の見ているSNSでは、ヒシャム・ハシミ氏についての言及は少ない。ヒズボラ、イランがサポートする組織がやったと非難する声はある。米国とサウジの代弁者というのは当たってるのかも。

Hisham al-Hashimi (9 May 1973 – 6 July 2020) (Arabic: هشام الهاشمي‎) was an Iraq historian and researcher in security and strategic affairs and extremist groups, and a specialist in the file of the Islamic state and its supporters.[1][2][3][4] He also was an advisor to the Iraqi government on counter-terrorism.[5]

Iran condemns assassination of Iraqi analyst
In a statement issued on Monday night, the embassy wrote that the Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns this criminal act, which has shown the ugly face of terrorists by killing elites.

Undoubtedly, the goal of the supporters and perpetrators of such operations is to destabilize and insecure Iraq and to create sedition and division among the nation and to restore violence to Iraq, it added.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the stability and security of Iraq and strongly condemns such actions, the statement read.

Iraq armed groups expert Hisham al-Hashemi shot dead in Baghdad
A leading Iraqi expert on ISIL (ISIS) and other armed groups was shot dead in Baghdad on Monday after receiving threats from Iran-backed militias, security and interior officials said.

Hisham al-Hashemi, 47, was shot near his home in the Zeyouneh area of Baghdad and pronounced dead at a hospital, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

"Yes, he passed away and his body is now in the hospital freezer," said Saad Maan, head of the interior ministry's media relations department.

A medical source at the hospital confirmed to AFP news agency that Hashemi had suffered "a hail of bullet wounds in several body parts".

The investigator assigned to the killing told AFP that Hashemi, 47, walked out of his home and was getting into his car when three gunmen on two motorcycles fired at him from metres away.

Hashemi was wounded and ducked behind his car, but the gunmen approached and shot him four times in the head at close range, the investigator said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the killing.

Al-Hashemi was a respected security analyst who appeared regularly on Iraqi television and whose expertise was sought out by government officials, journalists and researchers.

Weeks before his death, al-Hashemi had told confidantes he feared Iran-backed militia groups were targeting him. He was known to be critical of militia activity.

His death comes as the government grapples with a spate of rocket attacks targeting United States interests in the country believed to be orchestrated by Iran-backed militia groups. A raid last week detained 14 members of the powerful Kataib Hezbollah group. All but one were released.

Al-Hashemi was a strong supporter of the popular protests that swept across Baghdad and Iraq's Shia-majority south in October - protests that had slammed the government as corrupt, inefficient and beholden to neighbouring Iran.

More than 500 people lost their lives in protest-related violence, including several prominent activists who were shot in Baghdad, Basra in the south and other cities.

But high-profile political killings have otherwise been rare in recent years.

"Cowards killed my friend and one of the brightest researchers in Iraq, Hisham al-Hashemi. I am shocked," wrote Harith Hasan, who was an academic researcher before becoming an adviser to Iraq's current premier.
