is still everyone in Nineveh, are unable to answer decisively on the difficult question, "Will it be the local police is capable of keeping the security file, after the withdrawal of the army?".
other confirms the readiness of the police, and cites a long series of recent achievements rose from the roof public confidence in the ability of police forces
To manage their own natural in maintaining security within cities, rather than the army which is supposed to be functions of keeping national security outside the cities
, but even those, they find the decision of the Ministry of the Interior the handover of security in the provinces to the police force in July next, surprising them, and that it requires Despite the merits of the police that the other devices supports.
governor of Nineveh Ethel Nujaifi supporters of this view was confirmed in an exclusive statement to "long" that the police are capable of keeping security in Nineveh, "provided that the promotion of its resources, and that changed the way its existing and develop new plans to maintain security. "
and added that he "should be during the next phase, that is to rely on intelligence information, and shall be collected accurately, and move towards the desired goals in particular," adding that the evacuation of the streets completely from any presence of the devices security reflects a negative impression about the security situation.
He pointed out that "We must leave the normal civilian life going alone, and organize themselves without any military intervention or a security directly by the security services," adding that the security situation in Mosul is better than before, and that security breaches that occur from time to time carried out by entities that do not control them on the street, and that the security forces to impose the same everywhere within the borders of the province, he said.
However, Najafi said: "But we need to organize and plans of another kind."
security chiefs, believe that the Local police are able to maintain security alone, provided that citizens provide the cooperation required of them, so they focused during press conferences on the detection of weapons caches, or the arrest of a gang is, that this would not have happened without the information made by the citizens.
and most of the moves in this encouraging trend for the citizens, Maj. Gen. Mahdi Gharrawi commander of the third federal police which spread its forces in the right side of the city of Mosul, as careful with every media appearance to him, to highlight the role of citizens, to contribute to the completion achieved his band.
It seems that the Second Infantry Division of the Army, which controls the left side of the city of Mosul, as well as parts of the right side of the connector, are experiencing a problem in this aspect.
Before the days passed, Maj. Gen. Ali Jassim Mafraji division commander, issued a statement in which he explained the reasons for his troops to raise the (stalls) in the district of Muthanna in the left side of the city of Mosul , and that the soldiers belonging to his band target there, amid the stalls and in broad daylight, and that all the owners of stalls according to the statement saw that, without either of them to report, or even help the wounded soldier and save his life.
I consider the statement excluding the owners of stalls for providing assistance to the soldier, pursuant to a terrorist is also to cover up the act of terrorism is terrorism and the law is punishable.
The statement pointed out that the stalls were originally bypassing the taboos of the street, causing congestion, and frequent crime in the words of the statement.
citizens find themselves confused, and do not know any option to cling to, the Army or the police, the former referred the city of Mosul to the barracks of a large military, and closed alleys within or emerging from all the neighborhoods and markets, and kept on a single port of entry and exit, with the spread of heavy fixed checkpoints, in all main streets and bridges of the city five. This situation, which he calls the military maintenance of the land, strangled the street congestion, and hampered the lives of citizens' economic, but with the transfer of Mosul into a new phase, having lived a mess and the war in the streets continued through the years from 2004 to 2008.
The local police, although they to develop a growing, but on 25 February 2011, which saw demonstrations overwhelming near the province of Nineveh, and break the rioters surrounded the police and stormed the building to maintain and set it on fire, such as a difficult experience entered the city of Mosul, have shown that incident police failures in the test.
but After a whole year, because the question again, does the security situation is stable in Nineveh, the answer to this question, is the reason for questioning some of the ability of local police to take over the security file in a manner independent of Nineveh, Mosul, in particular, in the light of all these enhancements and deployment of the army in the streets, argue that the assassinations are located, and car bombs and roadside bombs exploded in various forms from time to time in different parts of the city, and extortion gangs are active, They are asking the same question, what if the streets were evacuated from the security presence and loosened the grip of the military?.
