Member of the Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee, Abdul Khaleq Al-Azzawi, warned against the return of ISIS activity to launch its attacks in Iraq.
Al-Azzawi said in press statements, "ISIS has exploited the security gap during the past days regarding the Iraqi forces' busyness in securing popular demonstrations." He pointed out that "political differences have had a major role in giving ISIS the opportunity to reorganize itself again."
He added that the pre-emptive strikes of ISIS positions and the unification of political and security ranks may limit ISIS activities that have emerged recently and remarkably.
On the role of the international coalition forces and the necessity of continuing their work in Iraq, Al-Azzawi emphasized that "the international coalition forces have contributed a lot to re-liberating the Iraqi provinces from ISIS and securing accurate intelligence information for the Iraqi forces and many of the air military operations carried out directly by the American forces."
He pointed out that "the recent events and the American-Iranian conflict negatively affected the presence of the American forces and the parliament's decision to remove them from Iraq."
On the initiative of Washington, the joint military operations between the two countries stopped on January 5, two days after the assassination of the Quds Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, General Qassem Soleimani, with a raid by an American plane near Baghdad Airport.
