PM Barzani talks about IS and lib­er­a­tion of Mo­sul

The Kurdish Globe - - SPORTS NEWS -

Prime Min­is­ter of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment, Nechir­van Barzani, made a state­ment about con­flicts in Iraq and ex­plains in an in­ter­view with Al-Mon­i­tor in Er­bil, "It was a big shock from the start of the of the ISIL. When ISIL first em­barked on the war in Iraq, Iran was one of the first coun­tries that came for­ward to de­fend us. It was felt that there was a com­mon en­emy. "

He added "and the other bit­ter re­al­ity was that the Iraqi army did not pos­sess the means to stop the on­slaught of ISIL. As a re­sult of a fatwa from Ay­a­tol­lah Ali Sis­tani, Hashid Shaabi, or the Popu- lar Mo­bi­liza­tion Units, are formed now. It would be un­fair to deny the pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion of th­ese forces to help push back ISIL. In many places they have played de­ci­sive roles in the battle."
