One of the camps used by coalition forces in Iraq is being handed over to the Iraqi forces. Camp Zulu is located in As Suwayrah, which is about 25 miles South of Bahdad.

This will be the first coalition camp to be handed over to the Iraqis.

On 21 August 2005, the 8th Iraqi Army Division officially took over the former coalition forces’ Camp Zulu, located in As Suwayrah . The 3rd Battalion of the 3rd Brigade, 8th Division will be permanently housed at Camp Zulu. This is the first coalition forces camp within the Multi-National Division Central’s South area of responsibility to be turned over to the 8th Division.


The Camp includes enough housing for a battalion size element and includes over 20 harden buildings, helicopter landing pad, and a dinning facility. It is estimated that existing facilities used by the coalition forces will be upgraded to provide permanent support facilities for the soldiers such as potable water systems, showers, etc.


I think this camp housed primarily International forces such as those from Poland but I don't know the exact numbers or nationalities of the troops who were stationed there.

The military has announed that it plans to hand over large parts of about 14 provinces over to the Iraqis. If so, we may see more camps being handed over in the coming months.

Perhaps the quite areas of the country are being given over to Iraqi forces to give them training and to allow the coalition to focus their efforts on the areas where the insurgents are most active.
