Number of security experts identified today, Saturday, the causes of the security breaches, the latest of which was the terrorist attack in Muqdadiya district, Diyala province, while proposing solutions to address the security situation and prevent such breaches.
The Security expert Ahmed Al-Sharifi told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "The security failure resulted from several reasons, as the terrorist group that carried out the crime of Diyala province, withdrew and we were unable to catch even a single thread that would lead us to them, stressing that the apportionment system caused a limitation of capabilities. If Iraq had the needed effort, it could monitor the attacking group and identify its perpetrators".
For his part, the security expert, Moataz Mohi, confirmed that "ISIS terrorist gangs target remote villages in the provinces," noting that "the security forces intensify its efforts is in the province's districts and headquarters."
And he indicated that "ISIS gangs resort to hide in the Hamrin Mountains near the governorate headquarters, affirming that there are various security forces in Diyala operations room, such as the Popular Mobilization Forces, the Federal Police, the Tribal Mobilization forces and others, but the reasons for the recurrence of these violations may be due to the lack of coordination on managing the security file among them. In addition to the constant and continuous placement of forces in the camps and not as mobile forces, so they slow reach the targets, such as what happened in Muqdadiya and the areas south of Kirkuk.”
Mohi stressed, "The necessity of activating the intelligence effort, and the cooperation of security leaders with citizens, especially since these areas are located within a wide geography and unpaved terrain, which makes it difficult for the security forces to reach there after the incident, and this calls for finding alternative, unconventional plans."
The governor of Diyala Muthanna Al-Tamimi, had confirmed earlier, on Friday, that the security situation in the province is under control.
Al-Tamimi said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency (INA) that "The security situation is under control, and there is high coordination between the local government and the federal ministries to impose security and restore stability in areas, especially the security hotspots."
