Eliminating an area exceeding 400 thousand square kilometers, and are related to the three areas are the piper, and Alaaadih, and Rabia, and includes more than 100 villages, famous for its inhabitants planted wheat and barley.

On the logistical level it requires editing the vast region to “armored” forces, and this is what had been demanded by the leaders of the popular crowd from the government.

A nostalgic Qaddo, deputy leader of Mosul in the crowd, “We have asked the government to get support because of the breadth of the region,” revealing “band or armored brigade will take part in the battles.”
