US Building Additional Military Base in Iraq

ERBIL — The US is establishing a military base near Mosul, north of Iraq to boost its military presence in the region.

According to Iraqi Lt. Col. Mahdi al-Khafaji who spoke to Anadolu Agency, the base is located in Zummar district of Nineveh province.

“The establishment of the base came upon talks held between the US and Iraqi forces on Friday in Mosul’s Zammar district,” he stated.

Technical teams of the US army have reportedly completed over 50% of the work at the base which is said to be used later as a command centre for the Tel Affar operation.

“US special forces and advisers have been deployed to the base,” the official said.
