Tashkil al-Hussein al-Tha'ir (Hussein the Rebel Formation, named after Imam Hussein) is an Iraqi Shi'a militia. Defining itself as part of the "Islamic Resistance" and the Hashd Sha'abi committee, the group appears to have close links with the Badr Organization and key pro-Iranian figures in the militia organization such as Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. Known areas of operation include Samarra, where the militia's commander Jasim Muhammad Salman al-Rikabi was killed in January 2015, and as of October 2015 Nadhem al-Taqsim in Anbar.
