  1. This is great news and thanks to the Iraqi Armed Forces and with the Iraqi Air Force plus the International Coalition Air Forces helping. I do know that my country’s Air Force was there at Tikrit helping Iraq even though IraqiNews did not mention it.

    Tikrit shows what can be achieved and the harder objective in liberating Mosul could also be achieved. I look forward to reading about that later in IraqiNews and by the looks of what has already been done and prepared at Mosul it will be happening soon.
