Iraqi Defense Minister: Iraqi military prepares to free Naiwan

Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi said that the Iraqi military is preparing for the liberation of the province of Ninawa with the administrative center of Mosul in northern Iraq from the Islamic State (IG) militants who captured it in the summer of 2014.




"The work continues night and day to develop plans that will prepare military units for the liberation of the province, but at the same time, if possible, avoid civilian casualties and preserve the infrastructure," the minister’s statement, distributed on Wednesday,

Last Tuesday, al-Obeidi met with senior military and local leaders to "develop plans and prepare for the liberation of Nineveh province."

The minister stressed that at the moment Iraq is experiencing difficult economic conditions, so when fighting, the Iraqi armed forces "must also think about preserving the infrastructure" and also "avoid any unjustified and unrecorded material losses."

According to him, for the liberation of the province of Ninawa from the militants of the "Islamic state" will need the help of local residents.

The IS militants managed to seize the province and its capital Mosul - the second largest city in Iraq - in June last year after civilian authorities and the army surrendered the region without the slightest resistance.

          And where to put them? Mi 24 attack assault helicopter, and MI-28 attack. Just what we see in Syria in the form of MI-24, Su-24 and Su25 most likely there will remain Assad. So the meaning is to drag something that we definitely don’t give. Well, these thoughts are so loud.

      Greetings Vlad hi

      Be so kind as to post a video where the Iraqis are fighting on MI-28 ...
      Iraq has a Mi-28, but I have never seen a video of its combat use on the Internet ...

      Iraqi Minister of Defense ... these unscrupulous people are the Iraqi military. At first they poured Saddam, then they got hooked on the salary of the Americans, but they “got it over” a year ago, having lost ground, stepping back and leaving weapons stores. After that, the Isis are the only terrorists in the world on the Abrams. And now they mean they plan to heroically correct their own failures.

        As correctly noted in one famous film, newspapers can be written out, but you can read!
        BAGHDAD, 17 August. Responsibility for the seizure of the Iraqi city of Mosul by militants of the Islamic State jihadist group last year rests with former Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Maliki and thirty other high-ranking figures. This is stated in the results of the investigation, which was submitted to the country's parliament on Sunday.
        The speaker of the house said that the results of the investigation will be transmitted to the attorney general, reports the BBC.
        We probably don’t know everything except the well-known facts that the capture of Mosul directly led to a drop in oil prices ..... One can only "guess" who is benefiting from this.

      Mi-24 can take a landing and participate in the evacuation of pilots, and 28 only fire support, so I think 24 is preferable in Syria.

        You are mistaken, on the 28th for evacuation there is a small landing compartment for unforeseen cases for several people.

    "... civilian authorities and the army surrendered the region without the slightest resistance." Traitors identified? Executed? If not, this is an endless story.

      Then they hoped for the help of "partners" negative , and now to the aid of the Russian Federation. Feel the difference! soldier

    What are some successes of the Iraqi army? In my opinion, the transfer of ISIS reinforcements to Syria and, naturally, the weakening of their defense in Iraq.

      What success are we talking about? Only the offensive plans are being developed, and the minister is trumpeting with all this, they say, prepare the Ishilovites well in this sector of the front, mine roads, build fortifications, we will soon depict the offensive ..... Werewolf in uniform, damn it ...

      Israel will definitely not intervene, why does it need it - after all, its enemies are fighting among themselves - which is what Israel needs.

      And inside Israel, the shaitans of civilians are cutting.

    In Iraq, at the "request" of the United States, some progress and imitation of intense activity in the fight against IS began. And all this is the result of our actions in Syria, which does not give Americans rest. No one asked them about their “successes" for a year from them (military amer), and now, looking at the results of Russian work, they began to ask. From here and vanity. But the storming does not bring to good.

    I don’t want to say anything about Iraq (about the army and tactics of warfare) .. I’m still waiting for the Iranian personnel to engage in military operations in Syria .... It’s difficult for the Syrians alone, even with air support from our air forces.

    Mosul is located in the north of Iraq, on the territory where Kurds live mainly. Apparently, some agreement was reached on supporting the Iraqi army's advance from the south by a Kurdish strike from the north, and the conditions for such support were determined ...

      So far the biggest success of the Iraqi army
      there was a repulsion from the city of Tikrit IS.
      But Mosul is a city five times bigger.

      Kurds occupied the Kirkuk region with its oil after
      the Iraqi army retreated from there, frightened by the onset of ISIS.
      Kurds are not particularly friendly with the Iraqi authorities. (They were not friends
      and with Saddam)
