I was searching for some more information about Iraq’s progress when I came across this little statement:
BAGHDAD, Iraq – The Government of Iraq and the Coalition Force officially announced the name for the Baghdad security plan Feb. 17. The operation is named ‘Fardh Al-Qanoon,’ an Iraqi phrase that translates to ‘Enforcing the Law.’
This is the title agreed upon by Government of Iraq, with the support of the Coalition leaders, and reflects the Iraqi-led nature of the operation.
“The plan is imposing the law on anyone who violates it,” Iraqi Prime Minister Nori Maliki said.
From this point forward the Coalition Force and its subordinate commands will use the title, ‘Fardh Al-Qanoon.’
