BRUSSELS, Belgium — Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi arrived in Brussels on Wednesday where he will join 57 other representatives from anti-ISIS coalition member states.


“In order for the continuation of supporting Iraq, there is a meeting to support Iraq through arming, training security forces because we also need security during peace to improve economy … without peace and security it is difficult to have investment or improvement of the economy,” Abadi said on Tuesday from Baghdad.

The US-led Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS will hold a summit in Brussels on Thursday. Iraq is expected to request military and intelligence support from coalition partner NATO.

ISIS militants attacked Iraqi forces guarding oil pipelines on the Kirkuk-Dubiz road late Tuesday, killing three and injuring another three.

Jasim Abdul-Rahman, the head of local council of Dubiz district, also told Rudaw that ISIS mobilization has increased in the region, leaving citizens in fear.

Dubiz, also called Dibis, is about halfway between Kirkuk and Erbil cities, south of the Little Zab River and the town of Pirde (Altun Pirde).

ISIS remnants and gangs have conducted several attacks on Iraqi forces, Hashd al-Shaabi paramilitaries, and civilians in disputed or Kurdistani areas around Kirkuk. 

The Iraqi government has promised to clear these areas and has conducted a number of operations, but so far failed to clear those areas, especially the mountainous areas in Diyala around Hamrin.  

Because of the instability and security situation, Iraq has been expediting the executions of "convicts."

 

Abadi declared ISIS defeated in December 2017. The country is yet to form a new government since the parliamentary election on May 12. Abadi's list finished in third.
