Israeli Media Accuses Iraqi Government Of Making Deal With ISIS In Hawija Area


Iraqi Army commanders negotiated a deal with ISIS in Hawija south of the Kirkuk provincial capital instead of combating ISIS in the area, Israeli military intelligence website DEBKAfile reported on Tuesday citing own military sources.

According to DEBKAfile, the deal was allegedly reached through the mediation of local Arab tribes.

“They granted safe passage for the occupiers [ISIS members] and their families to withdraw from Hawija, in return for a commitment not to resist the Iraqi army’s takeover of the town. Iraqi troops indeed secured a corridor for their exit, after which the Islamic fighters headed for Diyala in eastern Iraq near the Iranian border,” the website’s report argued.

Spokesman for the Iraqi Joint Operations Command Yahia Rasoul officially denied these claims and called the allegations “very funny”.

“Iraqi troops had not, and will never, strike a deal with Daesh (IS), neither in Hawija nor anywhere else,” he said. “There had been a ferocious fighting, hundreds of IS were killed, and hundreds of explosive devices were defused…what deal are you talking about?”

    We all ( i mean, the regular readers of this site) know what roll ” the kingdom of David” has been playing in the Syrian-Iraq war and therefore know they have there own agenda and reasons for making these statments.
    Sending ISIS units to Iranian border…? Iran would never agree!

    Typical evil, hypocritical Zionist media rats. Question to these rats: Why don’t you criticize Uncle Stupid, yes that Uncle Stupid in Washington, DC (as in billions of dollars into your coffers each year)? They make deals with the enemy murderers. “But, but, but, uh, uh…..”

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Israel should know, seeing how Israeli army leaders were arrested by Iraqi forces months ago embedded within ISIS helping advise the defense of ISIS cities.
    No one knows ISIS from the inside out quite like Israeli’s.
    And if ISIS is making deals, Israelis would know about it.

    Does Israel just say that to save Barzani of embarrassment of not helping in Hawija?

    Imam gave a speech in 2015

    When ISIS attacks non-Muslims, they immediately blame Islam for it. I have no doubt that ISIS is motivated by an agenda run by the enemies of Islam – by the enemies of Islam. And I want to bring this to your attention: ISIS has targeted people:

    • in Lebanon,
    • in Syria,
    • in Iraq,
    • in Kuwait,
    • in Saudi Arabia,
    • in Pakistan,
    • in Afghanistan,
    • in Yemen,
    • in Algeria.

    The only place – the only place that has been completely safe and has never been threatened by ISIS nor has it been targeted is Israel. What does that tell you? It speaks out, it speaks volumes, that ISIS somehow is connected to Israel. And ISIS is playing the role of the arm of the Zionist in the Muslim world to kill more Muslims and non-Muslims so it can defame the name of Islam. So people can blame Islam for its atrocities so people will be alienated from this religion, a peaceful religion, our religion. Otherwise, who is benefiting from these atrocities? Are Muslims benefiting? When they are jeopardizing the fate of 6 millions in the United States. 20 million Muslims live in Europe. Their fate, their well being, their livelihood is being jeopardized by ISIS. Has Islam benefited? No! The number 1 beneficiary of all these atrocities – I tell you – is the Zionist. It is the Zionist regime. And unfortunately this is the fact that we need … we have not been able to make people understand. This is the fact that we need to tell the world that ISIS – no matter how they look, with long beards and robes, and Islamic slogans, shouting “Allah- Wa-Akbar” after every atrocity, after every crime they commit, that does not mean they are Muslims at all. These are the enemies of Islam and the enemies of the Muslim Umma who are bent on destroying the reputation of Islam.
