The executive order of the appointment was appended by the signature of the secretary of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Muhammad Hamid Kadhem.
According to the document obtained by Shafaq News Agency, PM al-Kadhimi assigned let. Gn. Harbiyah as Dhi Qar Police Commander, in addition to his duties as the Chief of Somar Operations Command.
