Iraq Situation Report: February 20-23, 2015

Key Takeaway:

Security forces have reportedly cleared “most” of al-Baghdadi sub-district and are preparing operations in Salah ad-Din to recapture Tikrit. In al-Baghdadi, the siege of the residential complex at the center of the sub-district was broken and the police station was recaptured although there remain attempts by ISIS to target security forces in the area. Tikrit will pose a greater challenge, requiring the coordination of security forces, tribal fighters, and Iraqi Shi’a militias in an operation that also aims to clear a number of smaller towns surrounding Tikrit. The clearing of Tikrit may be an indicator of security force performance for a possible upcoming operation to re-take Mosul. Tikrit is likely to be a source of heavy resistance, along with booby-traps that will make any capture of the area painstakingly slow work. Finally, the concentration of security forces in al-Baghdadi and Tikrit may also expose other parts of Iraq to attacks by ISIS.
