At the start of March 2015 Harith Dhari the head of the Association of Muslim Scholars died in Turkey. Dhari was a leading opponent of the U.S. occupation of Iraq, which led him to support the insurgency. Both his son and nephew became leaders in militant groups as a result. Dhari was eventually issued an arrest warrant that caused him to leave the country, and later the United States and United Nations labeled him a terrorist supporter as well.
