Iraq Situation Report:  April 21 - May 5, 2017


By Jessa Rose Dury-Agri and the ISW Iraq Team
 
 
ISIS is setting conditions for its annual Ramadan campaign, anticipated to begin on May 26 with intent to exploit security vulnerabilities across the country. ISIS tested security in and around Baghdad by conducting a successful Suicide Vehicle-Borne IED (SVBIED) attack in central Baghdad and attempting additional attacks in Balad, Tarmiyah, and Jurf al-Sakhr.
 
ISIS strained Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) resources by increasing the tempo of attacks in Ramadi and far west Anbar Province. ISIS attempted numerous attacks in Salah al-Din province, which the ISF foiled.
 
The attacks indicate ISIS's continued attack capabilities in this zone. ISIS attacked Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) near Mosul in a potential bid to incite sectarian violence and detract from Mosul operations.

Erol Özkoray: " Mustafa Kamal based his Republican regime on the nationalist ideology of a Turkic race whereby Anatolia had to be "cleansed" of all "foreign" elements. Policies of ethnic, cultural, economic and social cleansing eliminated much of the Armenian, Assyrian and Greek groups albeit failed to do so with the Kurds - hence the Kurdish problem today."

LOS ANGELES, California- Rudaw - The 2017 Universe Multicultural Film Festival (UMFF) proved to be provocative and refreshing including the debut of the Kurdish film 'Kurdistan Kurdistan.'

It brought many intriguing films from around the world to the greater Los Angeles area for three days at the Promenade on the Peninsula, RHCC Community Center and Peninsula Center Library in Los Angeles, California.

 
The almost decade old event organized by Maeya Culture Exchange Group LLC, offered a rich variety of films ranging in genres from documentaries and animations to shorts and feature length films, each delving into some form of cultural expression or traditions, with a myriad of works from world cinema represented by films from many countries including China, Korea, Cyprus, Iran, Russia, Japan, and a film from Northern Kurdistan.
 
According to Lynn Tang, the festival executive director: "Films have the power to bring history, culture, and languages together. This is how I found out about Kurds. I did not know much about the people and the land.  Watching ‘Kurdistan, Kurdistan’ opened my eyes to the beauty of the music and sad state of people’s lives.

Iran, a Secret Hand behind ISIS Growing!

Today, ISIS is so weak in comparison with its power during last three years, but whereas the anti-ISIS operations have been successful somewhat this terrorist group is close to its last breathing, the United states, the European countries and the Arab states should be careful about what was behind the power of ISIS, because the source of terrorism the Islamic Republic of Iran is breathing yet.

 
 

Some important elements behind very fast growing of ISIS

When ISIS was a small group and had not been gotten a worldwide attention yet, the situation of Iraq and even Syria was not suitable for raising such a brutal and backward group. In Iraq, for instance, the Sunni Iraqis were tired of being in center of the clashes between the Iraqi army and the Coalition forces with Al-Qaida and pro-Bath groups and the bomb attacks carried out by the Shia and Sunni terrorist groups that had caused destruction of every things a normal life needs.

In one aspect, this is right that the war situation cause violence that reproduces violence; but it should not be forgotten that any growing political group needs to get a sort of support from the purpose community. We did not see any big uprising or protest at Iraq’s Sunni cities against the presence of the United States’ forces in Iraq or more against the Kurdistan government as an ally of the U.S in the period of constructing ISIS while most of the protests and complains were concentrated on the Iran’s interferences in Iraq’s affairs and Baghdad government. But ISIS has not attacked the Iran’s very close allies so often that it has targeted the U.S’ allies, except during its first year.
