New military scandal in Iraq
10:18 AM ADMIN
Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: Social media and organs disclosed document of investigating Qayara battle's failure due to the leak of some military documented plans that benefited Da'ish (ISIS) organization in the current expected Mosul battle.
The document stated orders by Premier Haidar al-Ibadi to investigate the leaking of the military plans by some military officials and commanders, but no other details were given.
This is the first time that the Iraqi government admitted the leak of military plans, on purpose or not, and started investigating the matter, though Iraqi political circles and military commanders are using every possible event to "declare the start of Mosul battle soon".
Political analysts believe that the results of this investigation will demote a number of military commanders, with possible effects on Iraqi defence minister Khalid al-Obaidi.
Parliamentary sources reported that "secret correspondences were observed with unknown circles, but no details were given.
The new leaks may affect the current clashes against Da'ish organization, which may affect or delay the military operations there.
On the other hand, Iraqi military sources expressed annoyance of international coalition's statements that the Iraqi army "only liberated one third of Fallujah city" in contradiction of governmental statements that it managed to liberate 90% of the city.
