MNF-W signs over Camp Fallujah to GoI control

Multi National Force – West

CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq – Maj. Gen. Martin W. Post, deputy commanding general Multi-National Force – West, and Mawafek Mohammed Al-Kumanji, director of real estate, officially signed over Camp Fallujah to Government of Iraq control today in a ceremony at the camp.

Camp Fallujah is the latest in a series of bases turned over to Iraq by MNF-West including bases in al-Qaim, Habbaniyah, the Haditha Dam, Ramadi and several smaller combat outposts throughout the Anbar province.

Camp Fallujah was home to nearly 8,000 service members from combat and service support units in February when the Camp Pendleton, Calif. based I Marine Expeditionary Force took charge of al-Anbar.

In addition, MNF-West also removedover 32,000 concrete and dirt barriers, 95,000 metric tons of scrap metal, and 900 containerized housing units – ultimately more than 6,400 tractor trailer loads. The project was completed on January 10.

In accordance with the recent Security Agreement, the closing of Camp Fallujah is another step in moving Coalition units outside the urban areas of Anbar. MNF-West remains ready to support the Iraqi security forces in providing security to the people of Fallujah and Anbar, a role the ISF has readily and successfully assumed.
