Iraqi forces are waiting for a zero hour to start the battle for the important northern city of Tal Afar controlled by ISIS.

According to the Iraqi Joint Operations Command (JOC), the ground operation will take place after preemptive artillery and air bombardment of the ISIS-held area.

The JOC also denied that the operation had started and said that Iraqi forces were awaiting the order from Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi.

Earlier today, some media outlets that the Iraqi Army, Fedral Police and the Popular Mobilization Units started the operation to liberate Tal Afar from ISIS. These reports appeared to be untrue.

Meanwhile, Irqi forces continued deploying  reinforcements strengthening the striking force that will particiapte in the operation.

    What not liberate the frontier with Syria ? It’s a trap. USA is preventing iraqis to reach the syrian frontier because USA wants to control it.

    Go liberate the frontier. ISIS is going nowhere in Tal Afar.

    Hopefully they can capture Tal Afar within the next thousand years (looking at their current speed, they just might make it a tiny bit earlier then that). It’s been a long time since they first announced that they will liberate it…

    The Iraqi Forces should be securing this region as fast as possible and make a strike towards the border on ISIS and get rid of any US involvement as they are only their to release ISIS and send them to the border to present more of a problem in the future.

    The US is extremely determined to achieve this to point to another nail in the coffin against Trump, they released 75 ISIS prisoners so they could join an offensive against the Syrian Army at the front with Maadan. The US is even rigging the referendum in KRG to ensure their goals are achieved there, they want to divide the region and destroy the Middle East are even going to cause a civil war in the US to ensure the one world govt under them is achieved.

    The wheeled vehicle in second photo down looks to be Ukrainian made BTR-4 – Iraq ordered them but after first deliveries cancelled rest of the order after they found too many manufacturing faults in them.
