chattels: Saturday, August 5, 2017 Post Mosul Liberation Day 25 Aug 4 2017

chattels: Every few days the militants have carried out an attack. So far, they are scattered and small scale, but they show that the group is still operating. It also shows they access to nearly every part of the province.

chattels: The ISF and IS are both awaiting the Tal Afar operation. The militants started digging a trench around the town. The Mosul police said that they were also moving people from the surrounding towns into Tal Afar itself to be used as human shields. An officer claimed that there were 2,500-3,000 fighters in the district, 90% of which were locals.

 He believed the fight would be easy because the insurgents had collapsed. Ninewa Operations Command head General Najm al-Jabouri disagreed, saying that it would be a tough battle. Jabouri changed his tune from just a few days ago.

At the end of July, he was interviewed by Reuters and told them he believed there were 1,500-2,000 IS elements in Tal Afar, and that things would be over quickly because the militants had been demoralized. While IS will put up a fight, they are surrounded, and will eventually be overwhelmed whenever the campaign begins.

The battle will likely follow the Mosul pattern with the Golden Division being in the lead supported by the armor of the army’s 9th Division with the Federal Police and Rapid Reaction police supporting and the Hashd taking care of the perimeter. Just as important will be what happens after the town is taken. The pro-Iran Hashd have wanted to take the town for months now.

 Not only do they feel like they need to protect the district’s Shiite Turkmen, but Tal Afar has been a historical way station for foreign fighters coming from Syria, and the home of many notable IS commanders.

The Hashd may want to incorporate the area into its security zone it is building in western Ninewa, which means the Sunnis could be expelled. There is also the threat of revenge attacks as has happened throughout the governorate after areas have been freed.

chattels: . Prime Minister Haidar Abadi said he has worked out a plan for rebuilding and created a timetable for the return of displaced in the province. No details have been divulged however, which might mean no plan actually exists yet.

The Displacement Ministry wants most people back in their home areas by the end of the year. The flow of people departing camps has not been much due to the reasons stated above. Until those factors start to change the current situation will remain largely the same.

Spectra: Then you may like this guy!

tman23: Moqtada al-Sadr, leader of the Sadrist Movement, lashed out at Iran Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) terror group, asserting that the government is the sole entity assigned to maintain security and possess arms. He also added that incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is still shackled by the legacy of his predecessor Nouri al-Maliki.

Sadr yet attacked the electoral law and elections' commission, saying the people should stand up to corrupt parties. Also, spokesman for the Sadrist Movement Salah al-Obeidi said on Friday that the Integrity Commission is working for certain personalities and parties.

"The problem is about covering up the corrupt by the regulatory bodies. Some institutions such as Integrity Commission turned out to be a tool at the hands of some parties," he added in a statement. Three years ago, Mosul fell to ISIS, and no regulatory body moved to call those responsible for this disaster to account.

tman23: Iraqi ministry of interior is investigating documented threats that Moqtada al-Sadr, leader of Sadrist Movement, received after his recent visit to Saudi Arabia. News media in Iraq, Iran and Lebanon hale started attacking Sadr as he visited Riyadh, considering the visit clear violation of loyalty to Wylayat al-Faqih.

Watheq al-Batat, Gaish al-Mokhtar militia leader, released a video threatening al-Sadr after his Saudi Arabia visit, which provoked a response from one of the latter's followers, who threatened to kill Batat in case of causing any harm to Sadr.

 Head of the security committee in the Iraqi parliament Hakim al-Zameli, affiliated with the Sadrist Movement, said the concerned authorities are investigating the recent threats against the Shiite leader. He refused to give further elaboration on the investigations are they are not accomplished yet. As soon as the investigations are over, the results will be declared, he noted.

On the threats, the lawmaker said they have surfaced after Sadr returned from Saudi Arabia. Those threats signal the refusal of some politicians and parties towards the visit.

This is not the first time where Moqtada al-Sadr receives death threats. In April, he received death threats after he called on dismantling all militias, including Saraya al-Salam.

tman23: Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Saturday that IMIS militia is still under the command of clerics and the state, and it will not be dismantled. During his speech at 'Jihad and Victory Fatwa' conference held today in Baghdad, Abadi added that Abadi is working for Iraq and it will not be dismantled.

He stressed 'all factions should partake in the liberation efforts. Iraq has broken the back of ISIS after retaking Mosul and preparations are being made to liberate Tal Afar, he further said. After liberating all territories, our next battle will be unity, Abadi noted.

 These comments come amid mounting calls for dismantling IMIS for the heinous crimes it commits against civilians, especially the Sunnis. Sadrist leader Moqtada al-Sadr on Friday called for integrating 'disciplined IMIS recruits into the armed forces, on strict conditions, calling on militias to handover arms to government amicably.

tman23: Mullah's regime is the sole beneficiary of the chaos in Iraq, former Nineveh Governor Atheel al-Nujaifi said on Saturday. In a post on his official Facebook page, he added that the Shiite leaders conveyed wrong images about Iraqi MPs to the Iraqi people.

 These images represent the failure of these leaders. Iraqi forces should deal with the residents of Mosul city as partners in victory against ISIS terrorists, Nujaifi continued. He is pointing out at the continuous violations committed by Iraqi forces against the Sunni civilians in Mosul and other cities.

The National Forces Alliance succeeded in gathering all Sunni parties and gaining regional support to political process in Iraq that aims to share authority according to the constitution, he asserted. In another post, he said that the rivals of Sadrist Movement Leader Muqtada al-Sadr must admit that he is the bravest politician after he addressed their mistakes and confronted them.

Meatball: @chattels ... evening.... hard to take any kind of timetable or schedule Iraq puts out

tman23: raqi government does not provide a stable environment for investment as the investors are exposed to kidnapping, extortion, apprehension, or suspension of their work inside Baghdad, Riad al-Adad, the head of the Baghdad Provincial Council, said Sunday.

He added during a TV show that lack of security is the main reason behind the inability of the officials in Baghdad to protect the investors.

He continued that providing security can create a stronger environment for investment. It is worth mentioning that Baghdad is witnessing a state of insecurity and chaos as terror attacks target civilians.

RickeyT: the only line the investors are in is at the airport trying to get out of Iraq....

tman23: Iraq is heading towards a major disaster due to widespread corruption, fraud and dominance of main parties over the political scene, Mithal al-Alusi, head of Civil Democratic Alliance, warned Sunday. Alusi said that major parliamentary blocs does not want reform but want to continue playing a predominant role in the political arena.

 He also noted that the best evidence is that main political blocs imposed their will on the electoral system in provincial councils' election bill.

The meeting is worthless, Alusi said referring to the meeting between leaders of political blocs to solve disputes regarding the elections bill.

abangjadul: GE all.....The government is succeeding in cutting public spending


abangjadul: The government announced the projects completed and other projects in the final stages of achievement, confirming their success in reducing levels of public spending. This came with the success of extraordinary efforts in securing access to development aid and loans under the best conditions for Iraq.

"The government and the result of the financial crisis in Iraq due to the collapse of oil prices in world markets and their decline to unprecedented levels have forced this reality to follow the economic policies imposed by the crisis to meet the government's financial obligations towards the forces," a spokesman for Prime Minister Saad al-Hadithi's office said Sunday. 
​Iraq and the requirements of the war on terrorism as well as towards about seven million citizens receive monthly salaries from the state and the amount of more than four trillion dinars per month, in addition to other financial commitments ».

He pointed out that «and in light of these urgent commitments, the government resorted to austerity policy and rationalize government spending and pressure the public expenditure of the country and succeeded in reducing levels of public spending to the proportions of 50 - 60%, and the government has succeeded in reducing dependence on oil imports and reduce its proportion in the budget To about 85 percent against the diversification of state resources and activating the role of many sectors in the budget of Iraq and work is under way to make further progress in this path ».

"At the same time, the government has dealt with the foreign aid and development loans provided by countries and international and regional financial institutions with a calculated policy in terms of ensuring that the Iraqi economy is not tied to financial commitments, high or long-term towards the providers of this aid and development loan
