The article focuses on the military operations of the Iraqi army troops against al-Qaeda in Diyala, Iraq. Iraqi General Abdulkarim Rubilee noted that the goal of the army troops is to get rid of what remains of al-Qaeda and the insurgents in the country. It emphasized that the main challenge in Diyala was the competition for control of land among Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds in a province that extends from the Iranian border to the outskirts of Baghdad. Moreover, a secret report produced by a Kurdish political party indicated that Iraq Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki has started to undermine the influence of those in the Iraqi military and security commanders who are classified as protégés of the U.S.
