Fedayins of Saddam did not form part of the Iraqi regular army, but functioned rather like a paramilitary organization. Fedayins depended directly on the presidential palace, and not on the military state major as it is the case for the other Iraqi armed forces. It was not a force of elite, they were often badly formed, and did not have heavy weapons.
Fedayins made party of the organizations most faithful to the mode of Saddam Hussein, and they were reliable for the operations of intimidation and assassination against the political opponents. Certain rumors speak about extra-judicial massacre made by the organization, in particular a campaign anti Prostitution, in which more than two hundred women would have been carried out.
