(IraqiNews.com) Baghdad – Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced on Tuesday, that the Iraqi forces reached an advanced stage in the battle to liberate Mosul, while expressed his intention to continue the training of security forces.

Abadi said during a news conference in Baghdad, “We reached an advanced stage in the battle to liberate the city of Mosul, and our plan is not to evacuate the families from the cities during the liberation operations.”

Abadi also pointed out to the continuous cooperation between the security forces and displaced people’s committees, and confirmed that they were able to provide food and fuel for displaced families in the liberated areas.

“The international coalition is surprised by the performance of the Iraqi army in the war on ISIS, and we must continue training the security forces and restructuring them away from sectarianism,” Abadi added. “Also, we have to start selecting officials on the basis of merit not on the basis of affiliation,” Abadi explained.

  1. I certainly hope all battles will be over soon so the Iraqi people can live peaceful and secure lives. That will be a great day for all Iraqis to celebrate.

  2. It is obvious that USA will betray the Kurds again in favor of Turkey, the new American chum with Caliphate Visions dancing in his head. The Syrian government and it’s allies are going to shoot down any intruder with those Russian air defenses. The Russians don’t want war but the elite rulers of America want war with Russia. Throw the Americans out of Iraq. Drag George W. Bush into the dock of a War Crimes Tribunal. Bush and his Israeli Co-conspirators should be punished as a lesson in justice for the poor people of the world.
