Nineveh Plain Protection Units (NPU) have accused Christian Babylon Brigades and other forces of the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) of assaulting their headquarters and confiscating their weapons to free six of the brigades' militiamen who have been arrested for stealing artifacts.  
This comes after clashes had erupted between the two sides on Saturday in al-Hamadaniya neighborhood in Nineveh Governorate. 
The six Babylon militiamen have been arrested for stealing artifacts of Nimrud, churches and monasteries in Qaraqosh area in Nineveh. 
The church has previously warned IMIS leaderships of these brigades' presence in areas populated by Christians, the Spokesman of the Assyrian Democratic Movement's media office Kaldo Ramzi said.
He added that IMIS leaderships, however, did not respond to the demands of Nineveh Plain's residents and political leaders.
Babylon Brigades is a Christian force that has been incorporated into IMIS, an assortment of militias led by the Iraqi government and their partners from the Iranian regime and Hezbollah.
