With new developments in Mosul come new concerns. The massive military operation launched on 17 October to take back Mosul, one of the most important strongholds of ISIS, continues. It is the most comprehensive military operation on Iraqi soil since the US invasion in 2003. A force of 100,000, consisting of the Iraqi Army, Kurdish Peshmerga, Shiite militias, Sunni and tribal forces, as well as US military advisers, are participating in the operation from land while the international coalition forces led by the US provide air support by bombing targets in the city. The fact that the parties that have disagreements, dissensions and serious differences among each other have come together for a common purpose is indeed noteworthy.
Al-Quds Al-Arabi, the leading Arabic daily newspaper published in UK, published Harun Yahya’s article “The True Salvation of Mosul is Possible Only with the Alliance among the Countries of the Region” on May 11th, 2014.
