An Iraqi military commander was discharged for submitting fawazir at a competition festival

Yesterday, the Iraqi Prime Minister, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces in his country, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, dismissed the Nineveh Operations Commander, Major General Abdullah Ramadan, from his position yesterday, on the grounds that he presented a segment at a Ramadan competitions festival, wearing military uniform.

According to a document, the order to relieve the Nineveh Operations Commander from his position came as a result of his “insult against the military institution.”

The appearance of the Nineveh Operations Commander, Major General Abdullah Ramadan, at a food festival in Mosul, sparked interaction between social media users who rejected and supported the operation.

Some social media users criticized the commander's appearance in military uniform while he was participating with celebrants from families who had attended the festival, and they also considered it an attack on military prestige.

A video clip was circulated on social media platforms showing the operations commander offering a set of raffles and announcing prizes for the winners, such as mobile phones and home appliances.

On the other hand, bloggers and activists from the city of Mosul expressed their solidarity with the Nineveh Operations Commander, against the backdrop of criticism directed at him on social media.

Activists confirmed that "Major General Abdullah Ramadan al-Jubouri was one of the participants in the operations to liberate Nineveh, and those who dedicated themselves to liberating it and supporting stability in the governorate."
