Erbil: Brusk Aras, a university student, has built a smart robot to help the Peshmerga forces detect bombs and booby-traps. You can run it through a cellphone or a laptop,he says, it is a remote controlled robot. “It can find any kind of bomb and notify the operator by an SMS,” Aras said. “Even if it is seized by the enemy, the operator can deactivate it.” “Let’s say the alarm is on 20 seconds, after this 20 seconds a small explosive planted in the robot will explode and the technology will not be in enemy hands,” he added. As it searches for and finds bombs the robot will send images to the operator. It can also estimate the distance between itself and the bomb. Brusk has been working on this robot for four years.He’s happy to be graduating with such an important invention. He’s now waiting for the Peshmerga to test his robot and put it to use.

Erbil: July 31st marks the 33rd anniversary of the Barzanis disappearance in 1983 in a genocide attempt against the Kurdish population in northern Iraq.  Thousands of Kurdish people consisting entirely of men and boys from the Barzani tribe in Kurdistan Region were executed by the former Baath regime in the genocide attempt of 1983. The Iraqi troops abducted over 8,000 Barzani males aged twelve or above on July 31, 1983. None of the abductees were ever seen again. They were reportedly killed and buried in mass graves in a desert between Iraq and Saudi Arabia.  The genocide of the Barzanis was accomplished through three stages by a decision of Saddam Hussein, the former Iraqi president, through Anfal campaign which was conducted during the Iraq-Iran war between 1980 and 1988.
[size=13]Iraq’s Shia accuse Sunni of denying Kurd: Sectarian rhetoric rises in preparation for Mosul[/size]
Baghdad: A prominent Shiite leader declared that no force could prevent them from participating in an anticipated battle for Mosul. He also accused Sunnis of refusing allow Kurdish forces from joining the offensive against the Islamic State (IS) in Mosul. “We are going to take part in the battle for Mosul and nobody can prevent us from doing so,” Hadi Amiri, head of the Shiite Badr Organization, told Rudaw on Saturday. “The general commander of the Iraqi armed forces and the Hashd al-Shaabi [Shiite militia] have decreed [Shiite] involvement in this offensive.” Amiri added that Sunni parties have rejected Kurdish involvement in liberating Mosul and have accepted just the Iraqi army. “Sunnis say they just accept the involvement of the Iraqi army. Although they are against it, the Kurdish leadership has decided that the Peshmerga should participate,” Amiri explained. |

[size=13]Former governor predicts Mosul offensive in September[/size]
Erbil: Former Nineveh governor Atheel al-Nujaifi says the looming operation to recapture the IS-held city will most likely start in mid-September and could continue well into November before militants are fully driven out of Mosul. Speaking to Rudaw TV on Saturday, Nujaifi said the entire province will be recaptured before the end of this year. “My prediction is based on the preparation of the armed forces led by the international coalition,” Nujaifi said. “I predict that the city will be fully liberated this fall,” he added. The former governor who has been put in charge of the Sunni militia known as the Hashd al-Watani with some 10.000 recruits said Mosul had been besieged by both the Iraqi and Peshmerga forces. To avoid “the total destruction of the city,” Nujaifi urged the residents of Mosul to “cooperate with liberating forces.”
