BAGHDAD,— U.S. forces will help Iraq set up a logistics hub in a recaptured airfield to use for a push on Mosul, Islamic State’s largest stronghold, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said before making an unannounced visit to Baghdad on Monday.
Iraqi government forces said they took back control of Qayara airbase, 60 km (40 miles) south of Mosul, from the militant group on Saturday, backed by air cover from a U.S.-led military coalition.
“The seizure of the Qayara West airfield … will be followed. Its purpose is to create a logistics hub there, so there will be U.S. logistics support,” Carter told reporters.

The airfield is “one of the hubs from which … Iraqi security forces, accompanied and advised by us as needed, will complete the southern-most envelopment of Mosul,” he added.
A senior U.S. defense official compared the Qayara site to the Taqaddum airbase west of Baghdad, an operations center closer to the fighting in Anbar province from where American troops have advised Iraqi forces since 2015.
“The fight for Mosul … is the culminating battle, and so we need a strong location from which to project and to support the Iraqis,” the official said.
U.S. officials said Carter would meet Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and Defense Minister Khaled al-Obaidi in Baghdad.
He would also see U.S. Army Lieutenant General Sean MacFarland, the head of the U.S.-led coalition battling Islamic State, which swept through large swathes of Iraq and neighboring Syria two years ago.
