The strength of the Finnish forces in Iraq is about 80 soldiers[/rtl]
[rtl]ARBIL (Kurdistan 24) - Member of the Peshmerga Committee in the Parliament of the Kurdistan Region, Saeed Mustafa, revealed the reasons for the withdrawal of the Finnish forces from Baghdad to the capital of the Kurdistan Region of Erbil.
Mustafa said to Kurdistan 24 that "the unstable situation and the deteriorating security conditions in the cities of central and southern Iraq, prompted the Finnish forces to withdraw from Baghdad."
And Mustafa added, "The second reason is that these forces will train the Peshmerga forces on the use of advanced weapons."
The Finnish forces in Iraq amount to about 80 military personnel, and Finland is a member state of the international coalition against ISIS.

Mustafa pointed out that Finland withdrew its forces to the Kurdistan Region, as it found it a safe and stable area.
"If the situation in Iraq continues to deteriorate, other countries will withdraw their fighters from central and southern Iraq to the Kurdistan Region," said international expert Aras Abdullah for Kurdistan 24.
Around four months ago, anti-government demonstrations erupted in different Iraqi regions. The protesters are calling for a change in the political elite that has monopolized the rule of Iraq since 2003, while approximately 460 people have been killed and more than 20,000 wounded to date, whether by security forces bullets or unknown persons.
