JOINT MOSUL COMMAND--Who Are Those Guys..?--SUBJ OPERATION FATAH, AL NASR OFFENSIVE, MAKHMOUR

(FIREBASE RODES, THE RIVIERA)--A number of new reports have surfaced from the front lines in the ongoing effort to push ahead, across the Tigris and move north into Al Qayarrah in the first phase to retake Mosul.

It appears, however, that there is general disagreement in what to call the command structure itself.

Somewhere late last month, the combined forces came under the heading of "Joint Mosul Command" but as Butch and the Sundance would question looking out over the posse hot on their trail,
"Who are those guys?"--



..










The Allied coalition operates under the title Inherent Resolve involving the 82nd and 101st Airborne/AirCav units, the Marine 26th MEU and Task Force Spartan; the Iraqis have dubbed the push Operation Fatah utilizing its 15th Mobilized Division, there appears to be a command center under some Ninevah, (the Ninevah Operations Center),  related title known as the joint operations center in Makhmour.

There is also the Iraqi Ground Forces Command and the Iraqi Joint Forces involved to whatever degree in the advance. There is also the Coalition Joint Forces Land Component Command and the Joint Coalition Coordination Center.

The Kurds have their own independent units operating in the field. A new report shows the Al Nasr offensive on hold as the Iraqi 15th wait for local police and militia to hold ground already taken.

"In order to retake Mosul, the Iraqi army had to capture other areas first," Jabbar Yaver, secretary-general of the KRG’s peshmerga ministry, told Anadolu Agency.
"There are Kurds, Turkmen, Sunni and Shia Muslims, Ezidi, Kakai, Shabak and Christians in Mosul," he said. "An agreement must be forged to prevent the emergence of political and security problems ."
