[size=13]Kosrat Rasul warns PUK meeting could deepen internal divisions[/size]
Sulaimani: Senior Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) member Kosrat Rasul issued a warning on Saturday that a meeting held by an opposing faction could tear the party apart. Rasul said a PUK leadership council meeting, which was held Saturday to discuss the party’s internal divisions, was beyond the organization’s existing principles and a “violation of rules.” “For the PUK to be able to play its role in tackling issues facing the Kurdistan Region, necessary steps need to be taken to overcome the party’s impasse and weakness,” he said. Rasul considered himself the rightful chair of the meeting held by an opposing PUK faction to discuss internal party disputes. “According to the party rules, the meeting had to be headed by the First PUK Secretary-General, due to PUK Secretary-General, Jalal Talabani’s illness,” Rasul continued. nrttv.com

Washington: U.S. envoy to the Coalition against the Islamic State (IS), Brett McGurk said on Saturday there is “unprecedented cooperation” between Peshmerga and Iraqi forces as an operation to regain Mosul nears. McGurk posted to his official Twitter account and said Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi will announce when an offensive to regain Mosul will be launched, adding “Anything said before then is premature.” nrttv.com

Kirkuk: A Peshmerga convoy was seen passing through the streets of Kirkuk, heading to Mosul on Saturday. The convoy is from the second reinforcement force, and the 16th brigade command. Peshmerga forces have begun mobilizing closer to the outskirts of Mosul. Today’s convoy is part of this military build-up, which is nearly complete, in anticipation of the battle that is expected to begin any day. “We are heading to Mosul with high morale. Our participation in the offensive is key, as a large number of Kurds live in Mosul,” one Peshmerga told Rudaw. Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, has been under IS control since June 2014. rudaw.net
[size=13]Iraqi air force drops leaflets over Mosul ahead of operation[/size]
Mosul: Iraq’s air force dropped thousands of leaflets over Mosul on Saturday, warning residents of an impending operation to eliminate the Islamic State (IS) in the city. “It’s victory time, time to celebrate a clean Iraq without Daesh [IS],” the dropped leaflets read. The leaflets warned Mosul’s residents, who have been under IS rule for more than two years, to keep their distance from specific locations, including militant positions in the city, which would likely be targeted by bombardments. “We are preparing to take action to free Mosul and regain security and stability in the region,” the leaflets continued. Iraq’s Joint Military Operations also issued a statement saying, “The leaflets have important information, to update [residents] with the latest facts and victories.” nrttv.com
