The Canadian newspaper "Ottawa Citizen" revealed the presence of Canadian military planning is currently heading to the options of the next mission of the Canadian forces in Baghdad, which will start this fall.
"The deployment of the troops will include the 125-strong protection group, whose duties include protection of the NATO headquarters in the Iraqi capital and a mobile protection group, which will be equipped with armored vehicles, according to the Canadian government," the newspaper said in a report.
"The defense watchdog has asked Canadian Defense Minister Hargit Sagan to know if the large LAV-lll can be sent, but Defense Secretary Press Secretary Bern Forlong said:" A final decision has yet to be made on the type of armored force we will use there, .
"A senior defense official in Canada has proposed the use of four-wheel-drive vehicles because the patrols will be largely in Baghdad," the newspaper said, adding that "more information will be issued about the composition of the mission and the equipment that will be used later."
According to the Canadian army, "a new high-mobility vehicle with a very high degree of protection is not as large as LAV-lll and can be more suitable for the urban environment where the model has not yet been announced."
Canada has announced that it will increase the number of extra soldiers in its new mission in Baghdad, which will begin in September.
