REPORTS FROM IRAQ
Ninewa Governor’s advisor for Christian Affairs and manager of Agriculture Directorate in Ninewa said that “thousands” of reconstruction projects in Mosul have been put on hold, pending funding from Kuwait. [Sumaria]
French President Emmanuel Macron says that France will protect the Iraqi state. He also says that the success of the Iraqi government lies in solving problems among all political parties. Macron was speaking in a joint press conference in Paris with his Iraqi counterpart Barham Salih. [Sumaria]
At the same press conference, President Salih said that Iraq needs to work with partners to dry up terrorist resources, and praised the role of France as an economic partner of Iraq. He added that the victory over Daesh is not complete, and requires more momentum. [Sumaria]
“Highly placed” sources said that financial networks had developed in Baghdad and Erbil to launder millions of dollars for Daesh, coming from Libya. Sumaria wrote that it reserves the right to publish the names of the financial institutions involved when the investigation is completed. [Sumaria]
An Iraqi military officer said that the SDF had now handed over a total of 280 Iraqi detainees to the Iraqi military. This includes both an initial transfer of 150 detainees last Thursday and transfer of another 130 detainees on Sunday. The SDF and the Iraqi military reportedly have an agreement to transfer around 500 Iraqis in total. An unofficial military source claimed that the 280 already transferred included up to 14 French nationals and 6 Arabs of non-Iraqi nationality; the Iraqi military has said only Iraqi nationals were handed over. [ElDorar] [Reuters] [France24]
The French newspaper Le Figaro also quoted 2 Iraqi military sources as saying that the handover included 20 foreign Daesh prisoners, among them 14 French nationals. [ZamanAlWasl] [Baghdadia] [Buratha]
A DaeshDaily source said on Saturday that the SDF handed over 14 Daesh terrorists, including Omar Farhat Al-Turkmani, to the Iraqi Intelligence Service. The source said Al-Turkmani (The Turkmen) is a senior Daesh commander.
The Security Media Center issued a statement on Sunday confirming that the Iraqi MoI had received 280 Iraqi Daesh fighters from the SDF. The statement said that the prisoners’ handover to the Iraqi authorities was conducted in order to avoid their release by the SDF. The statement also said that the MoI was checking their names against a database of people with outstanding arrest warrants and referring their cases to the courts for trial. Finally, it said that only detainees of Iraqi nationality were handed over. [Baghdadia]
However, Iraqi President Barham Salih said on Monday, during a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron, that Iraq would try 13 Daesh prisoners who were French nationals and had been handed over to Iraq last week. He said that the French Daesh fighters were accused of committing crimes against Iraqis, and so their trial in Iraq was authorized by international law. [Doualiya]
Sumaria recounted the story of Iyad, a 10-year-old boy who spent the last 4 years in Daesh captivity. He is a Yazidi who was abducted from Sinjar and recently rescued from Al-Baghouz. Iyad’s uncle said that the boy had not yet reached Iraqi territory, although he expected Iyad to arrive back in Iraq in the next 1-2 days. The uncle mused as to whether Iyad was still “the same boy,” or if he had become radicalized during his time with Daesh. [Sumaria]
The Financial Times also warned of the radicalization of Iraqi Daesh children following the arrest of their parents. It told the story of an Iraqi child who witnessed the arrest of the child’s mother from a tent in an IDP camp in Ninewa. [Sumaria]
Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi
Security sources say Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has arrived in Anbar to reorganize Daesh fighters in the Anbar desert. The Emirati newspaper Al-Bayan quoted a US military source as saying that Al-Baghdadi had moved to Anbar after Daesh lost its territory in Syria. He reportedly used tunnels dug by Daesh between Deir Ez-Zor and Al-Qa’im, which can accommodate cars and motorcycles, to cross the border. The source said that information received by the US military indicated that Al-Baghdadi is in the Husseiniyat area in Anbar, along with hundreds of fighters. [Qasioun] [ElYowm]
An Iraqi intelligence source denied that Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was in Iraqi territory, calling the assertions in the above story “inaccurate and fundamentally incorrect.” The source claimed that Al-Baghdadi had not entered Iraq and that he was still being watched by Iraqi intelligence and the Coalition. [Buratha]
Another “senior military intelligence source” said on Monday that Iraqi military intelligence is hunting Al-Baghdadi on the Iraq-Syria border, and said that there was intelligence indicating that he was in the border area. [Ghad]
DaeshDaily comment. Our readers know we have been consistently skeptical about all the Al-Baghdadi “sightings” by people who have not actually seen him. Not to our surprise, none of these rumors (perhaps too positive a word) has panned out. Today we have three reports—all from (supposedly credible) “security” and “intelligence” sources—telling us with all solemnity that Al-Baghdadi has been located in (1) western Rutba, (2) Syria, and (3) the Iraq-Syria border.
A DaeshDaily source said on Saturday that PMF units found the bodies of 6 fishermen from Najaf who were killed, execution style, by Daesh near Lake Thirthar. The victims had been kidnapped by Daesh last week.
The PMF media office said that the 313th PMF Brigade attacked a Daesh gathering near the island of Umm Al-Ramal in the Lake Thirthar area with rockets, wounding and killing several of them. [Sumaria] [Buratha]
The Directorate of Military Intelligence said on Monday that its detachments from the 10th Brigade arrested a Daesh member in the Albu Dhiab area, northwest of Ramadi city. [Sumaria]
A DaeshDaily source said on Saturday that Daesh released 6 civilians from Haditha who it had kidnapped last week.
DaeshDaily comment. Daesh doesn’t release anyone without a reason. The main goal here is to reestablish connections with the local communities in western Anbar. Daesh killed 6 Shia civilians and released six Sunnis. The message is clear.
Anah (including Rawa)
A DaeshDaily source said on Sunday that 2 PMF fighters were killed and their military vehicle destroyed in the Jazeera Rawa area. The source said PMF units have started a military operation to clear the area from Daesh.
Daesh said its snipers killed five Iraqi soldiers and wounded two others on Sunday, when it said it stopped a military campaign in the Anbar desert. Daesh also said it damaged two vehicles carrying heavy weapons. [ICDNFeb25-Telegram]
A DaeshDaily source said on Saturday that tribal PMF units trapped 7 Daesh terrorists in a tunnel near Horan Valley. The PMFs threw hand grenades in the tunnel, killing all of the terrorists. The source sent us a video of the aftermath.
On Sunday, the PMF group Al-Abbas Combat Division announced that it was undertaking the “largest operation … since its formation” to clear the western desert areas of Iraq from Daesh cells and sympathizers. Al-Abbas Combat Division Command said that the operation would cover 450 km2 between western Anbar, Rutba, and the Iraq-Syria border. [Nahrain]
On Monday, the Al-Abbas Combat Division Command said that Wadi Al-Ghadhaf, in the desert between Rutba and Nukhaib, had been completely cleared, and that Daesh tunnels and war detritus had been destroyed as part of the operation. [Ghad]
DaeshDaily comment. Al-Abbas Combat Division is a Coalition-supported PMF faction. It is one of Iraq’s most effective volunteer forces. One reason is that the division take orders from the Iraqi national command authorities. The division has consistently stated that it works fully under Ministry of Defense authority; receives its heavy weapons from the government, to which it will return them upon request; will not seek arrest powers; and is committed to dissolving at the government’s request. It was the right decision to assign this group to western Anbar.
An Anbar Provincial Council MP claimed that security personnel had not freed any civilians kidnapped by Daesh in the Anbar desert, saying that instead, a ransom of $10,000 was paid to secure their release. The MP, who preferred to remain anonymous, said that Daesh is building up its capabilities financed in part through kidnapping operations, and demanded a military operation take place to clear the desert. [BasNews]
Ali Al-Bederi, an MP in the CoR for the Islah (Reform) bloc, also noted what he said were “suspicious” Daesh movements on the Iraq-Syria border. He called on Iraqi and Coalition planes to attack and end these movements. [BasNews]
According to DaeshDaily sources, local activists from Anbar are calling on the Iraqi government to establish a special emergency operations room to deal with Daesh’s reemergence in western Anbar. The activists say that Daesh is reorganizing itself in western Anbar, with hundreds of terrorists who have fled from eastern Syria.
Daesh said it killed three PMF fighters on Saturday in clashes “with different kinds of weapons” near Nukhaib, in eastern Rutba. [ICDNFeb25-Telegram]
Salahuddin Police Commander Qandil Al-Jubouri said on Monday that police had stopped a terrorist attack on Salahuddin Refinery 1 in Baiji. He said that the attack lasted for 3 hours, and at least 15 attackers participated, including suicide bombers. He said that at least 3 attackers were killed, another was arrested, and the rest fled towards the Makhoul Mountains. [Baghdadia]
DaeshDaily comment. Surviving in the desert depends on raising enough money. This makes oil facilities a logical target, just as they were when Daesh built up its caliphate before. The continuation of such attacks is therefore guaranteed.
The PMF media office said on Monday that units from the 43rd PMF Brigade had stopped a Daesh attempt to “infiltrate” the Samarra-Baghdad road near Al-Rufaiat. Its statement said that the PMF units attacked the terrorists with mortars and heavy machine guns, inflicting an unspecified number of casualties. [Ghad]
The Security Media Center said on Monday that IFP units had arrested a Daesh agent in the Laylan IDP camp. The Center’s statement said that the arrestee was distributing aid to Daesh families within the camp. [Ghad]

Human Rights Watch (HRW) said on Monday that authorities in Ninewa Governorate have threatened, harassed, and detained relief workers, and have pressured relief organizations to stop providing support to families believed to be affiliated with Daesh. Some relief workers are facing accusations of being Daesh members themselves. HRW wrote that 22 related incidents had been documented in Ninewa since January 2018. [BasNews] [Mada] [HRW]
A DaeshDaily source said on Sunday that the son of the mukhtar of Tal Al-Reem village was wounded when a sticky IED exploded under his vehicle.

The Directorate of Military Intelligence said on Sunday that a “dangerous” Daesh official called the “emir of invasions” had been arrested after crossing the border from Syria. The Directorate’s statement said that the “emir” organized Daesh “invasions” against Iraqi security forces in Anbar, hence his appellation. He was arrested in Rabi’a subdistrict in northern Tal Afar. [Buratha]
The Iraqi High Commission for Human Rights said on Monday that 69 mass graves had been identified in Ninewa Province, mostly in Sinjar. The organization said none of these graves have been exhumed so far, but that an international organization was working to exhume one of them in Sinjar after coordinating with the locals there. A member of the Sinjar Committee of Elders, Mahmoud Al-Araji, said there were 74 mass graves in Ninewa, and that some of the mass graves in Sinjar had been destroyed by flooding. [PressIraq]

The office’s statement said that the terrorist was a national of an unspecified Arab country and had previously worked with Al-Qaeda in Iraq, losing an eye while planting an IED targeting Coalition forces. [Forat]
The local Asayish Directorate also said on Monday that its units had arrested a terrorist who had entered the Kurdistan Region with a fake ID. [PUKMedia]
REPORTS FROM TURKEY
REPORTS FROM SYRIA
An International Crisis Group report said that 6 months after the Syrian government had retaken southern Syria with help from Russian mediation, the security and living conditions there remain “precarious,” the Syrian government re-established authoritarian rule, and Iranian-backed militias were trying to establish a presence near the border with Israel. It also noted that there were increasing reports of assassinations of former rebel leaders, for which state security agencies could be responsible. The ICG also said IDPs were still discouraged from returning to their homes in southern Syria due to the lack of functioning infrastructure, services, or employment. [TheNational] [CrisisGroup]
The SDF said on Sunday that their infrastructure was strained by the number of people leaving the last sliver of Daesh-held territory. SDF-affiliated Kurdish political official Abdelkarim Omar said, “The numbers of foreign fighters and their relatives that we are holding is increasing drastically.” SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali also said on Twitter that dealing with foreigners who had fled Daesh-held territory would “remain as the biggest challenge awaiting [the SDF] unless governments take action and fulfil their responsibilities for their citizens.” [AFP]
The father of Shamima Begum, the British girl who ran away to join Daesh and was subsequently stripped of her UK citizenship, told the Daily Mail that he supported the Home Office’s decision. He said that while he knew she was stuck in Syria, this was because of things she had done. Begum’s father’s statements contradict the rest of her family, who have appealed to the Home Office to reconsider. [BasNews]

[Reuters]
DaeshDaily comment. More bad news for The Sultan. Erdogan’s scheme to take over full control of northeastern Syria is opposed by not only the US and SDF but also Syria and Russia. He can’t bully everyone at once.

The Daily Mail wrote on Sunday that Coalition units found 50 severed heads of Yazidi girls in Al-Baghouz that had been dumped in waste bins.
A WhatsApp conversation between a Daesh leader in eastern Syria and a Yazidi leader in Iraq discussed the fate of the last Yazidi girls held by Daesh. The Daesh leader said that no Yazidi girls were permitted to leave the Daesh-held portion of eastern Deir Ez-Zor on the orders of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. The Daesh leader also said that a decision was made “before the New Year” to kill 50 Yazidi girls in retaliation for the Coalition bombing of Daesh-held territory. The Daesh official asked the Yazidi leader to negotiate with Daesh to release the remaining Yazidis held by Daesh. [Sumaria]
On Monday, the SDF launched a new attack on Baghouz. A source from the SDF said that it had evacuated about 2,000 civilians who are related to Daesh members. [BasNews]
The Wall Street Journal wrote on Sunday, however, that the SDF offensive is still being slowed by the civilian presence in and around Al-Baghouz. It said that around 5,500 to 6,000 civilians have been evacuated by the SDF in the past 5 days, and that the SDF estimates that an equal number are still inside the Daesh-held portion of Al-Baghouz, including Daesh fighters’ families. [WSJ]
As the siege on remaining Daesh-held areas in Al-Baghouz goes on, the number of civilians exiting the area is increasing, many of them still affected by Daesh thought. A woman whose Daesh husband was killed in Al-Baghouz was quoted as saying that she does not have any regrets, and that those who are fighting are fighting for the sake of God. “Those who are exiting are the weak who cannot fight,” she added. [Rudaw]
OTHER MIDDLE EAST/NORTH AFRICA REPORTS
On Monday, Mohammad Javad Zarif announced his resignation from the post of Iranian Foreign Minister. [Rudaw]
Al-Monitor wrote that Zarif’s resignation came after he was excluded from the Monday meeting with Bashar Al-Assad, who was visiting Tehran. According to its sources, Zarif “expressed indignation” at the Foreign Ministry being left out of the proceedings. It is unclear whether President Rouhani will accept Zarif’s resignation. [AlMonitor]
DaeshDaily comment. We may learn something from this. A plausible explanation may be that Assad was invited and hosted by the Revolutionary Guard, which conducts its own foreign policy under the supposed leadership of Khamenei and is all over Syria. When a head of state shows up, however, the host country’s head of state is obliged diplomatically to greet him. This is another indication that the elected side of the Iran government and the “revolutionary” side are not aligned, though this is less obvious recently because the pressure of US sanctions has forced the two sides closer together.
