The Iraqi Army is bracing for an all-out operation to retake the highly-strategic district of Tal Afar in northern Iraq from the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group in the upcoming days, Press TV reports.

The Iraqi Army’s Golden Division has reportedly carried out a number of landings in strategic posts in the city of a mixed Shia-Sunni population, which is situated near the Syrian border.

Kurdish officials in Erbil, the capital of the Iraqi Kurdistan, have told Press TV that Kurdish troops are in full control of mountains less than 15 kilometers (nine miles) west of Tel Afar.

“Peshmergas (Kurdish forces) cannot be leading an effort if there will not be a comprehensive strategy by the Iraqi Army, by the support of the Sunnis, because without them it will turn to be a Kurdish-Arabic fight in those areas and that is the last thing that we want,” said Hemin Hawrami, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official.

“We don’t want that to happen and ISIS will get benefit from this,” he said, referring to the terrorist group by another acronym.

Meanwhile, Iraqi Kurdish fighters are continuing their push into Sinjar.

The town is home to the Kurdish Izadi minority, who had to flee an ISIL onslaught in August.

“Peshmerga forces are implementing a well-calculated military strategy by rolling ISIS back from these areas and putting and building strong defense lines to hold that area. So we have liberated this area. Our strategy is to hold them and push back any counterattack by ISIS,” the Kurdish official said.

The ISIL terrorists control some parts of Syria and Iraq. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control. ISIL militants have terrorized and killed people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians
