    Saattavat halutakin, mistä sen tietää, mutta uutinen AMV-ostoksista on TÄYDELLINEN UUTISANKKA; Irakiin ei saa vientilupaa, eikä kukaan ole edes yrittänyt ottaa yhteyttä Suomeen asiassa.

    Olihan tuossa mukana vielä ilmeisesti Saddamin masinoima murhasuunnitelma Bush Sr:ia vastaan...joten on vaikea olla ajattelematta, että 2003 invaasiossa oli mukana myös hieman henkilökohtaista kaunaa.

    Entäs Etelä-Afrikan Badgerit? Heltiäiskö niille vientilupa?

    Military reinforcements in western Mosul as PMU prepare fresh operations.

    by Mohamed Mostafa

    Jan 12, 2017, 10:20 am

    Nineveh (IraqiNews.com) Large troop reinforcements arrived on early Thursday in western Mosul preparing for a new phase of operations by pro-Iraqi government militias against Islamic State militants.

    A statement by the media service of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Units) said the reinforcements arrived late Wednesday preparing for the “sixth phase” of operations in western Mosul.

    Last November, al-Hashd al-Shaabi ended a fifth phase of their operations by retaking a military airbase and besieging the strategic IS stronghold town of Tal Afar. But news concerning the militias’ intention to invade the town were conflicting. Fears have been voiced by regional Sunni powers, such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia, that the involvement of the Shia-predominated al-Hashd in Tal Afar’s liberation could result into sectarian consequences with the Sunni residents of the town.

    Since operations to retake Mosul launched in October, Iraqi forces, backed by an aerial cover from a US-led military coalition, have become in control over nearly 50 out of 84 districts in eastern Mosul, and commanders declared earlier this week they had reached the eastern bank of the Tigris River, which bisects the city. IS still maintains strongholds in the west.

    Iraqi military media have put the number of IS militants killed since the launch of operations in October at at least 1757.

    The conflict in Mosul has forced more than 173.000 civilians to flee homes in the city.

    Iraqi special forces have stormed the Mosul University complex in the city's north-east and pushed forward to reach another bridge across the Tigris river, beating Islamic State (IS) militants further back, the military says.


    Key points:
    •Special forces say university is most important Islamic State base in the east
    •Witnesses reported bulldozers smashing through a campus wall with rocket launchers
    •Western Mosul assault is expected to restart after the eastern bank is secured

    The militants were fighting back at the university, which they seized when they took over the city in 2014, and there were heavy clashes inside the campus, witnesses said.

    Iraqi forces have recaptured most districts in eastern Mosul in nearly three months of a US-backed offensive.

    Senior Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) officer Sami al-Aridhi said the university was the most important IS base in the eastern half of the city.

    Iraqi forces aim to take full control of the eastern bank of the Tigris river, which bisects Mosul from north to south, before they can launch attacks on the west, which IS still fully holds.

    Driving the ultra-hardline group out of its Mosul stronghold will probably spell the end for the Iraqi side of its self-styled caliphate that stretches across areas of Iraq and Syria.


    "The operation today which took the terrorist elements by surprise was the storming of the University of Mosul," Mr al-Aridhi said.

    He said the CTS had taken over a hill overlooking parts of the campus, including the technical college.

    "Forces are heading into the depths of the university," he said.

    Earlier in the day, bulldozers smashed through a wall surrounding the campus and dozens of CTS troops sprinted through carrying rocket-propelled grenade launchers, according to witnesses.

    West Mosul assaults to begin after east bank secured

    An Iraqi officer said army units backed by air strikes had also taken control of the Hadba district, north of the university, and would aid the assault on the complex.

    The recapture of the university would be an important gain because it would enable further advances as it overlooks areas closer to the river, another commander said this week.

    In a separate advance further south in the city, other elite CTS units reached the second bridge, also called Freedom Bridge, one of five across the Tigris, a military statement reported by state TV said.

    Iraqi forces have now reached Mosul's two southern-most bridges, having battled their way to the fourth bridge several days ago.

    Assaults on the western half of Mosul are expected to begin once Iraqi forces have secured the east bank.

    All the bridges have been hit by US coalition air strikes in an effort to hamper IS militants' movement across the city.

    US and Iraqi military officials say IS has caused further damage to at least two of them to try to hamper any Iraqi advance across the river.

    The US-backed campaign to drive IS out of Mosul, involving a 100,000-strong force of Iraqi troops, Kurdish fighters and Shiite militias, began in October.
