Iraq, ISF and Peshmerga create coordination centers to destroy Isis

ISF and Peshmerga create two joint anti-Isis coordination centers in Erbil and Baghdad. More will soon be born in the border areas of Iraqi Kurdistan. This is due to the fact that the PMF were unable to guarantee security in the area

The ISF and the Kurdish Peshmerga have decided to set up two joint coordination centers in Erbil and Baghdad to better coordinate in the war against Isis. In addition, similar arrangements are being discussed for Kirkuk and other border areas within Iraq (six in all). The option was made necessary following the fact that the People Mobilization Forces (PMF), which had to guarantee security between Iraqi Kurdistan and the rest of the country, were unable to carry out their task. It is no coincidence that large pockets of IS militiamen have created in the quadrant, who have launched waves of attacks against both the military and the population. Moreover, last Friday there was a similar agreement on Sinjar, where it was agreed to normalize the situation in the district where the Yezidis minority lives.

Objective of the operation: to create a large anti-IS defensive line between Diyala and Mosul, which also allows the terrorists to be attacked directly in their bases in the quadrant

The agreement between ISF and Peshmerga was also an opportunity to discuss common security problems, Isis in the first place. In particular, the parties studied the nature of the jihadist threats and began to work together on a joint anti-IS plan. The goal is to drive out the terrorists in the area between Iraqi Kurdistan and the rest of the Middle Eastern country. In this context, a central role will be played by the two new commands in Erbil and Baghdad, to which a third could soon be added in Diyala. The structures, in addition to exchanging intelligence information, will coordinate reciprocal operations. Furthermore, they will be able to send reinforcements immediately where necessary, without having to wait for authorizations or red tape. The aim is, in fact, to constitute a great defensive line against the terrorists between Diyala and Mosul and to have the ability to hit them directly at their bases in the quadrant.
