Late on July 17, Brig. Gen. Ali Hamid Ghaidan al-Khazraji commander of the Iraqi military’s 59th Brigade was killed in clashes with ISIS terrorists.

The terrorists ambushed the commander’s convoy in the area of Tarmiyah, to the north of the capital, Baghdad. Brig. Gen. al-Khazraji was immediately killed. ISIS’ news agency, Amaq, alleged that three of his bodyguards were also killed in the ambush.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi ordered government forces to hunt down the terrorists responsible for the assassination of al-Khazraji.

Maj. Gen. Yahya al-Rasoul, a military spokesman for the PM, said the authorities are currently investigating the criminal attack, stressing that the perpetrators will be held accountable.

“We will reach the perpetrators so that they take their fair punishment,” the spokesman said.

ISIS cells are fairly active around Baghdad, despite the tight grip of security forces. Two days ago, the Iraqi intelligence eliminated the terrorist group’s governor in the capital, Omar Shallal Ubaid al-Kartani, in a special operation.

The killing of Brig. Gen. al-Khazraji is a serious blow to Iraqi security forces. The attack on the commander’s convoy was apparently well-planned. ISIS cells clearly had detailed information on the movements of the commander. The terrorist group may be tracking other senior officers.

ISIS = ZioWestern Special Forces.


It appears that US and Israeli intelligence is still controlling ISIS and supplying information.
The US and Israel are effectively at war with Syria and Iraq and their armed gangs of mercenaries are the preferred foot soldiers for the ‘exceptional nation’.

The age old problem with mercenaries is that their warlords become too greedy, and this enables the US to use the theatre of ‘bombing terrorists’, whilst still supporting other groups of terrorists.
Killing a few errant terrorists is also a warning to other terror warlords to stay loyal to the USA.
