The Iraqi military has been ordered to not participate in any joint operations with the U.S. against the Islamic State. Mistrust and suspicion have abounded since Iranian General Soleimani and an Iraqi general were killed by an airstrike. An informal request has also been made for all U.S. troops to be withdrawn from the country. The military announced the resume of joint operations on January 30th but quickly rescinded this statement. “After the killing of Soleimani, the Iraqi government decided to inform us formally not to cooperate and not to seek assistance from the U.S.-led international coalition in any operation,” commented a senior intelligence official.
