Officials said the squadrons of the "F-16s" Iraq had joined the service and attacks on nests militants Daash in the desert, as the join came as a kind of Iraqi American cooperation at the level of the Air Force.
He says American officials, said militants Daash has weakened their military capabilities, despite their dependence on conventional military operations, a booby-trapping the residential neighborhoods and the use of car bombs in the attack, and benefit of mortars and the spread of snipers.
The officials said that the US side has helped the Iraqi security forces building insulator line after the army equipped with bulldozers and armored equipment mine clearance.
