20150422_193206

 

ANBAR

  • Jazeera Operations Commander says his troops, supported by tribal fighters, implemented a successful military operation to cut Daesh supply lines between Al-Qa’im and Kubaisa in west Anbar, killing 10 Daesh terrorists and destroying 4 vehicles.

 

  • A security source says the Daesh wali (governor) in Hit, a Saudi called Abu Talha, was killed on Tuesday morning by unknown armed men using guns with silencers. The source says this assassination is the first of its kind to infiltrate Daesh in Hit.

 

  • Iraqi MoI says 34 Daesh members were killed and many injured in two Iraqi Air Force strikes on a Daesh training camp in Hit. The Ministry says the airstrikes were coordinated among the Joint Forces, MoI’s Al-Suqour Intelligence Cell, and the Iraqi Air Force. The ministry says several Daesh leaders were killed in the airstrikes. This is the third military operation organized by Al-Suqour Cell in Anbar during the last 3 days.

 

  • The Spokesman of the PMFs says opening a secure path for the civilians to leave Falluja is the reason behind delaying the military operation to liberate the city. He denies reports there are disputes between the PMFs and PM Abadi about Falluja. Some news sources say Abadi is under huge pressure not to let the PMFs participate in Anbar liberation battles.

DaeshDaily Crosscheck: As noted in earlier DaeshDaily reports, however, the outside PMFs were sent in after Anbar officials overcame their reluctance and openly requested that the government get their help to remove Daesh.

 

  • The MoD says the Iraqi Air Force launched airstrikes on 4 Daesh locations near Khaldiya, killing 10 terrorists The IAF also bombed Daesh in the Al-Falahat area, killing 6, and a Daesh location in Husseiniya near Hit. The MoD also says Jazeera Operations Command spotted two Daesh groups near Majed checkpoint and gave their information to the Coalition, who bombed them and killed 30 terrorists.

 

  • The MoI says Iraqi Air Force launched airstrikes on Daesh in Falluja killing 30 terrorists.

DaeshDaily Opinion: This news didn’t appear on the MoD’s website, which shows the confusion inside the Iraqi establishment regarding the media coverage, and perhaps the management of the military operations too.

 

  • The MoD says Iraqi forces killed 8 Daesh terrorists, and destroyed 2 car bombs and captured 3 other vehicles, in Qarma. Local sources say a Daesh terrorist in a car bomb attacked an Iraqi Army checkpoint in Qarma, killing 4 soldiers and injuring 4 others.

 

  • The Iraqi Minister of Defense visits Haditha and Jazeera Operations Command and meets with the military and tribal leaders there. He ordered more humanitarian supplies for the citizens of Haditha, who have been besieged by Daesh for months now.

 

  • A member of Anbar GC says Daesh looted Ramadi Museum and started to sell the stolen archeological and historical pieces to specialized dealers. He also says Daesh has its own “archeology experts” who have vast knowledge of the international smuggling market.

 

  • The MoD says 500 tribal fighters from Ameriyat Al-Falluja graduated from their training camp in Habbaniya. The Ministry says this is the first groups out of 2,500 local volunteers being trained by Iraqi MoI officers under the supervision of the MoD and in coordination with the Coalition.

 

  • Local sources say Daesh shelled Ameriyat Al-Falluja with rockets and mortars killing 5 police officers and injuring 6.

 

  • A member of Anbar GC says the Ramadi liberation battles haven’t seen any advances yet and that has given Daesh time to reinforce its positions there. He also criticized the Coalition’s airstrikes, saying their role is “weak and below the required efforts”.

DaeshDaily Opinion: Many Iraqis we talked to recently, especially in the Iraqi armed forces, showed the same dissatisfaction with the Coalition’s role. Some say Iraqi intelligence is providing the Coalition with information and GPS locations but the response from the Coalition is very slow, if it comes at all. In addition, the accusations about the Coalition accidentally dropping supplies to Daesh in several areas continue and we don’t see efforts to encounter these accusations effectively. However, some people we talked to praised the Australian Air Force, saying they are more accurate in their airstrikes.

Local sources say 25 Iraqi soldiers were killed or injured in the continuous clashes in Tal Abu Jarad.

 

  • The Spokesman of the PMFs says the PMFs are clearing Baiji of IEDs and have surrounded Daesh snipers in the city. He also says Iraqi forces are preparing to attack Siniyya from several sides.

 

  • The MoD says Iraqi Army Aviation bombed a Daesh gathering near Ajeel oil field, killing 20 terrorists and destroying one vehicle. The Ministry also says IAA destroyed a Humvee bomb and 2 other vehicles in Siniyya.

 

  • The MoI says Samarra Operations Command secured the return of 100 displaced families to Tikrit after clearing their area of IEDs and setting up basic services.

BAGHDAD

  • A police source says armed men in two pickups kidnapped the director of the electricity department in Talbiya in east Baghdad from his office.

 

  • A security source says 1 civilian was killed and 10 injured when an IED exploded near a grocery market in Ameriya west of Baghdad.

 

  • A security source says an IED exploded near a sheep market in Latifiya south of Baghdad, injuring 8 civilians.

 

  • A security source says 2 civilians were killed and 8 injured when an IED exploded in Hay Al-Turath in south Baghdad.

 

  • Iraqi Council of Ministers approves the General Amnesty Law draft and will send it to the Parliament in the next two days. Many (Shia) politicians expressed their concerns that the law might let some terrorists out although PM Abadi assured them the amnesty will not cover several crimes, especially terrorism. On the other side, Sunni politicians said the draft was emptied of its intended impact and does not address the real problems of (Sunni) people who were arrested unjustifiably on terrorism accusations.

DaeshDaily Opinion: It is not a coincidence that terrorist activities increase after every amnesty. For example, two months ago amnesty was given by PM Abadi to local police who left their posts when Daesh captured several Anbar cities last year. Ramadi fell immediately after the amnesty, when apparently the same police officers left their positions and let Daesh terrorists enter the city without a fight. This is not to say Iraq doesn’t need a general amnesty, but amnesty should be given as part of a national reconciliation process that addresses the grievances and the concerns of all Iraqis. An amnesty should be directed to people who were accused but innocent. Iraq’s amnesties often release people who have blood on their hands but have the right political or tribal connections. Many current Daesh leaders were in prisons and then released for no good reason.

For example, the terrorist confessing in one video is now a Daesh leader in Mosul and appeared in a recent video leading a tribal gathering. His confession in the first video was obviously under threat, but that doesn’t mean he was not affiliated with Daesh at that time.

The reality is entirely different.
