The commander of the 9th Armored Division in the Iraqi army, Lieutenant General Qassem Nazzal, on Sunday, completed the plan to liberate the district of Tall Afar from the control of the organization, “Daash,” while stressing that it did not include the participation of any faction of the popular crowd.
“The military plan for the liberation of Tal Afar is fully completed,” Nazzal said in an exclusive statement to Baghdad today. “Their implementation depends on the zero hour declaration to be determined by the commander-in-chief of the armed forces Haider al-Abadi,
Nazzal added that “all armed forces are ready to carry out this operation in order to fight the terrorists wherever they are and to expel them from their last place of presence.”
On the formation of the military formations that will participate in the operation, Nazzal said that “the forces and formations that participated in the liberation of Mosul will participate in the liberation of Tal Afar district,” denying “the participation of any faction of the popular crowd within the plan prepared for the liberation of Tal Afar.”
On the news that there is an agreement between the Ministry of Defense and the Abbas combat team and the brigade of Ali the elder on their participation in the liberation of Tal Afar, the commander of the 9th Armored Division, “the news is baseless.”
