About the flag

The caption on this flag reads: "Iraq's counter-terrorism forces raided the base of Iran-backed militia Kataib Hezbollah and arrested several of its members" dated 6 January 2020. (source)
Bill Garrison, 22 August 2020

This is a flag of the Liwa al-Muntaẓar (Catalan: Les Brigades del Esperat, English: The Expected One's Brigade), also transliterated as Liwa al-Montadhar - لواء المنظر. The Expected One's Brigade' name is for the 12th Shi'a Imam: Imam Mahdi. As Saraya al-Jihad, Liw al-Muntazar is affiliated with Harakat al-Jihad wa al-Bina'. It is operational south of Bagdad and in Babil and Anbar provinces. I created some good images that will be distributed in next days in The Flag Report, together with dozens of flags of Shiite militias.

This flag is part of an umbrella organization of armed military units labeled as الحشد العشائري (Tribal mobilization), the armed component of the Popular Mobilization Forces. (source #1) and (source #2).
As already mentioned by Jaumé, this group, as part of the Popular Mobilization Forces is identified as the 7th Brigade: "Originally part of the Iranian-aligned Jihad and Development Movement, or حركة حزب الله في العراق (Hezbollah Movement) in Iraq (official website) of [a] "Shi'a Islamist, Iraqi political party". The latter is not affiliated with Lebanon's Hezbollah that was a part of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI) umbrella. Liwa al-Muntadhar has formally split off from the Jihad and Development Movement. Liwa al-Muntadhar has been closely intertwined with سرايا الجهاد (Jihad Companies). (source #3 and (source #4)

Now, regarding the area of operation, the source for Jaumé's comment is this logo featured in the middle of the flag (image) (source #5). The logo is a circular yellow background with the Imam al-Mahdi (without a face), on horseback, waving a green banner with an inscription in Arabic with his left hand and yielding [a] Zulfiqar. The image of the Imam is seen over a globe, featuring an additional inscription on top and an additional inscription on the bottom, featuring two green Dragunov sniper rifle silhouettes, having below a legend/motto in yellow over a black background and featuring two tree branches coming out of the banner featuring the legend/motto. This would be called the first logo version, featuring an abbreviated inscription below the Imam.
