The American forces in Iraq take advantage of the night shift for helicopter and even land operations, through military convoys between the bases in the north and west of the country and the Iraqi capital, while the surveillance planes that march above those bases, within a previous understanding with the Iraqi authorities, do not stop the activities of those forces and forces The international alliance also at night, what appeared to be an attempt by Baghdad to avoid political pressures from armed forces and factions, which were usually using videos of the movement of those forces during the day to reinforce its discourse rejecting foreign presence, except that the movement is safer at night.
According to an Iraqi official in the current caretaker government, the newspaper, the military movements of the international coalition forces at night "are mostly carried by helicopters, from one base to another or a camp to another to transport troops or equipment, and their increase is part of the relocation process that the American forces are specifically conducting." .
The Iraqi official pointed out that "the American forces inform their Iraqi counterparts of these movements, several hours ago, for the purpose of coordination and insurance, especially if there is a movement of land movements", explaining that the increase in the recent period "has to do with the process of securing sites and soldiers of the international coalition in general after the recent missile attacks That touched the forces. "
He indicated that "the night curfew in most cities and regions of the country, in addition to the advantage of controlling the security side at night from any possible attacks, is the first reason that the movements are carried out at night between the hours of 11 and four in the morning," noting that "it took place in previous times filming American and other coalition frames in Mosul, north of Baghdad and Anbar, which caused problems and led to an escalation by armed factions that reinforced their anti-foreign rhetoric.
Last Tuesday, the deputy from the "Al-Fateh" coalition, the political wing of the "Popular Mobilization" in Iraq, Fadl al-Fatlawi, considered the recent American moves in Iraq and its withdrawal from the western base of the country as "a start to their willingness to leave the whole of Iraq."
In a commentary on the subject, Al-Fatlawi described the American forces as "concerned about the Corona epidemic and the strikes of the Islamic resistance", referring to the armed factions linked to Iran.
On the other hand, Iraqi military officials said, according to the newspaper, that the American convoys in general, do not come out only with the presence of Iraqi forces accompanying them working to control the path of their departure and stability, and also to secure them from any accident.
An officer in the sixth division of the Iraqi army confirmed to the newspaper that "there is no American convoy without Iraqi escort," adding: "The Iraqi in general hates their presence, and remembers difficult days he lived in the shadow of the occupation when the American convoys were killing citizens on the street for the trivialest reasons, so our presence is important to take them to the base." Or the camp they want to be in. "
The officer added, "Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed", that "these nighttime movements that have been repeated in the past days are linked to changes taking place in the Taji and Sammah bases north and south of Baghdad, which were subjected to missile attacks," likely that the plan will be to evacuate them completely by the international coalition forces.
The rumors accompanying every move by American convoys or intense aviation are not interrupted, especially in Baghdad, and are usually at night and fade in the morning, such as an American landing or killing of an armed faction commander, or bombing targeting a stronghold of armed factions. And since the night of the assassination of the leader of the "Quds Force" Qassem Soleimani and the leader of the popular crowd, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, at the beginning of this year, the news has found its way among the people more.
The Iraqi expert, Ahmed Al-Hamdani, explained that "these fake news may not be in vain by teenagers or even like collectors of lakes and sash, as much as it is an attempt to get the Iraqi mind to use such news, and it may be intended."
Al-Hamdani mentioned to Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed that most of these news are naive, such as a single number statement broadcast by the American army, or the landing and killing of so and so, many of which direct unknown pages or accounts at night, and more often find their way on smart phone applications as Urgent and exclusive news, now and a little while ago, and it really does not deserve to be denied or even answered, but at the same time it may be an attempt to normalize or accustom the Iraqi, as he may soon hear real news like this.
