Iraqi forces prepare for Tikrit offensive - The Washington Post
“It will be a very hard fight,” said Jassim al-Jabara, head of the security committee for the Salahuddin provincial council, which urged remaining civilians to leave Tikrit and nearby al-Alam, ad Dawr and al-Bouajil. The operation will begin “very soon,” he said. Sheik Jassim al-Saidi, a commander with Kitaeb Hezbollah, and other militia leaders said the offensive could take 10 days .
In January, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi told Reuters that a campaign to retake Tikrit would be launched within a month. He said then that there was no timeline for an attack on Mosul, which requires more planning. A U.S. Central Command official said Thursday that an assault could begin in April or May, though military experts and Iraqi commanders have questioned whether the country’s ground forces would be ready.
