Abadi made a mistake by proclaiming the victory "early" on a preacher
 

Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi did not hesitate to announce the great victory on the organization of a supporter, despite the certainty of the existence of the organization on the ground, but a different strategy, which raises questions about the nature of victory achieved under the new mobilization in Nineveh and Kirkuk, and the fragility of the security situation in Diyala and most areas Edited. 

On Sunday, the leaders of the Joint Operations Forces, the counterterrorism forces, the federal police and the princes of the Popular Popular Militia met to put in place a plan to "implement new measures on the developments of the security file in Kirkuk, especially in the areas of Hawija, Riyadh and Rashad, Basneoz).

The provinces of Kirkuk and Nineveh are experiencing deteriorating security conditions following the proliferation of kidnappings and assassinations as well as threats from members of the organization Daadash, where a security source announced a large-scale military operation; to pursue the cells of state organization in the province of Kirkuk.

"The joint forces of the federal police and the militias of the popular crowd launched on Sunday a military operation to secure villages in the area of Riyadh, which belongs to the province of Hawija, 55 km southwest of the city of Kirkuk," the captain of the Kirkuk police, Hamed al-Obeidi, told Anatolia.

 He added that «the operation was supported by the warplanes, and was based on intelligence information about the activity of the organization's militants».

Over the past weeks, the province of Kirkuk has seen mounting attacks, mostly carried out by armed men linked to the organization, calling for military and civilian targets.

Observers pointed out that the prime minister's rush behind him the desire to invest victory for electoral propaganda, especially with the near date of elections scheduled for next May, confirming in more than the forum of eligibility to victory, saying: "We have accomplished the difficult task in the circumstances Difficult and victorious », and always deals with the comparison between what has achieved the victory and what did his predecessor Nuri al-Maliki accused of default; because of the control of the Daqash on three provinces in the presence of the post of prime minister.

The implications of "early victory" on the security of liberated areas

Security experts say the implications of the early declaration of victory are evident in the coming days. The remnants of a scattered organization in the restored areas are expected to pose a security threat that could hinder some reconstruction.

The security expert Muayad al-Juhaishi said that the liberation operations were not complete and there is a difference between the expulsion of elements calling and eliminating them, expulsion means to get them from one region to another, and this is what happened in most of the liberation operations carried out by the Iraqi forces, and the elimination of them, A clear strategy based on military, security and intelligence determinants.

"Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi and the Popular Popular factions rushed to announce victory over the organization of Daqash, and today we are witnessing the biggest evidence of the mistake of that announcement, which came for electoral reasons seeking to win the majority of the southern provinces and play on sectarian strife," he said.

Western reports warn that the organization will follow the strategy of hitting the vital points that will be based on reconstruction such as power stations, water, in addition to targeting human gatherings such as crowded markets, despite the declaration of Iraqi forces from time to time, carried out raids on additives to elements of the organization calling, in addition to air attacks targeting communities In areas outside cities.

On the ground, Deputy Chairman of the Security and Defense Committee, Nayef Al-Shammari, revealed the foiling of an attempt to insert a large load of rockets and missiles into the city of Mosul, pointing out that «the repetition of the crossing of the wheels of the checkpoints makes us repeat the scenario of the previous phase where the booby- Without anything preventing it ».

Al-Shammari said in a statement that "the arrival of these weapons to the elements of the organization, despite the existence of controls, which we do not wish to repeat, especially Nineveh province, which lived and suffered the most difficult circumstances due to negligence and breaches of security."

Iraqi forces are not ready for the new phase

The operation, in which an organization ambushed an ambush last month that killed 27 members of the Popular Army militia in Hawija, south of Kirkuk, showed the lack of readiness of security forces for the second phase of the war against Da'ash, to which Washington has warned in more than one statement and a press conference.

According to leaders in the security forces, the elements and pockets and armed groups that fled from Mosul, «hiding in the desert areas west of Mosul, and carrying out attacks targeting both the security forces and the people».

For his part, said a member of the provincial council of Kirkuk, Mohammed Kamal that the situation is worrying in the province after the events of the sixteenth of October last, where the Iraqi forces took over the security file and the army of the Kirkuk society as if we returned to 1918 when there was a military governor of those cities, The Peshmerga forces over the past years have been on the border of the province to face a hasty organization, not within the cities as it is now.

"The solution lies in the agreement between the region and the center and sit at the negotiating table and discuss all the points of contention, and then the return of the security file to the local organs, the police Kirkuk and Asayish forces, which has a database full of elements and their movements, Did not benefit from the Iraqi forces and did not coordinate with Asayish in this regard ».

The desert areas, the valleys, the plateaus, the pits, the dugouts that were dug, and all their needs of arms, ammunition, water, fuel and food are used to provide them with the possibility of hiding for long periods of time.

 Observers consider that the remaining elements of the organization are "active cells and not dormant" as some areas are attacked and, occasionally, a series of assassinations of certain personalities.

"The battle of intelligence effort is the biggest challenge, because the security forces will look for elements that exist between us, unlike the military page," he said, adding that "the battle of the intelligence effort is the biggest challenge. Which ended where he was a well-known and open-minded advocate and places and borders ».

According to expert expert on armed groups Hisham al-Hashemi, "the organization of a supporter turned into a shadow state, which relies on organizational structures of traditional states even if they were not as effective as they were, in addition to the transition to the structure of the digital succession by the adoption of social networking sites, Self-sufficiency through kidnappings, banditry and other methods, as well as specific operations.
