With the start of the military operation to control the Iranian-Iraqi borders and control of two executives, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi confirmed that he would not allow the theft of public funds in border crossings. “The stage of restoring order and law has begun, and we will not allow the theft of public money in the outlets,” he added from the Mandali border crossing.
He also stressed that “the customs campus is under the protection of military forces,” noting that “his visit to the outlet is a clear message to all the corrupt that you no longer have a foothold in the entire border crossings and that all departments work to fight corruption because it is a public demand.”
Ending influential groups to control access
The joint Iraqi operations command announced earlier Saturday, its control over the ports of Munthiriya and Mandali (Sumar) with Iran fully, as part of a plan to end the control of the influential groups on the border crossings.
This came, hours after the Military Media Cell announced the launch of operations of “the fourth stage of Iraq” to pursue the remnants of terrorism and impose security and stability in Diyala province, with the clearance and inspection of the border strip with Iran. The cell pointed out in a statement that “under the supervision of the Joint Operations Command, the fourth phase of the operations of the heroes of Iraq was launched at dawn today to pursue the remnants of terrorism and impose security and stability in Diyala province, with clearing and inspection of the border strip with Iran and entering special operations within the areas that ISIS exploited to exist And carry out its terrorist operations, which are the areas separating the federal forces and the Kurdish “Peshmerga forces.”
Attack against Al-Kazemi
It is noteworthy that Al-Kazemi was a promise in a letter received by the government to combat corruption and waste in state facilities.
During the past weeks, he faced a fierce campaign by a number of pro-Iranian factions, against the backdrop of the anti-terror apparatus carrying out a raid south of Baghdad that led to the arrest of a number of Hezbollah battalions against the background of the rocket attacks that affected varying times in areas where American military bases or American installations.
The assassination of the Iraqi expert Hisham al-Hashemi on Monday, who was advising the government on ways to combat ISIS, as well as the pro-Iranian factions, also considered an indirect message to al-Kazemi, who pledged retribution for the killers.
