Sunnis Working With Turkey to Prevent Shias Liberating Mosul of Daesh

 MOSCOW (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — The Arab population of Iraq’s Mosul are cooperating with Turkish forces to ensure that the city will be liberated from Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh in Arabic) by Sunni, and not Shia, militias, a representative of the Peshmerga, Iraqi Kurdish armed forces, told Sputnik on Tuesday.

On December 4, Turkey deployed up to 150 military personnel to northern Iraq’s Nineveh province, without Baghdad’s approval, allegedly to provide training to Kurdish militia who are fighting extremists.

“These [Turkish] forces have entered [Iraq] with agreement with Sunnis of Iraq and they are participating in the liberation of Mosul. The Arabs [of Mosul] don’t want Iraqi Shia militias to enter Mosul hence they asked Turkey to supervise the Sunni militia,” the Peshmerga representative said.

On Sunday, Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elaraby condemned what he called Turkey’s blatant invasion of Iraq, noting that only the UN Security Council could facilitate the withdrawal of the Turkish troops.Large territories of Iraq and Syria have been occupied by Daesh, a terrorist group outlawed in Russia. Daesh has carried out numerous terror attacks and committed many human rights atrocities worldwide.

Amid Turkey’s deployment of troops in Iraq, the government in Baghdad has warned that it is ready to take appropriate measures against the Turkish forces if Ankara does not pull its troops out of the country by the deadline set out by the government, which is late Tuesday.
