DaeshDaily comment. Given the leading Nujaifi family role in the absurd three-way plot involving the separatist National Mobilization Forces, the Turkish troops in Bashiqa, and KRG President Barzani, the best advice to the Iraqi government is to avoid taking any advice from anyone even distantly related to the Nujaifis. Perhaps he is thinking that Ninewa should be liberated by its own sons because it was betrayed by its own sons?
