Point of order: 'After Mosul’s liberation, Nineveh would be province'
Friday, 11 March 2016
Our guest this week is the former Iraqi governor of Nineveh, Atheel al-Nujaifi, who welcomes the participation of the Iraqi army, the international coalition and the Peshmerga in liberating Mosul from ISIS. According to him, the organization – lead by him - that participated locally in this liberation is the National Mobilization Forces consisting of Mosul’s people. As for the Popular Mobilization Forces, it is excluded from the liberation operations because “Sunnis and Kurds do not trust it,” even though al-Nujaifi differentiates between Iraqi members of the Popular Mobilization and its militias backed and lead by Iran.
