Launched on September 19, 2014, the "Chammal" Operation represents the French participation to Operation Inherent Resolve with nearly 4,050 soldiers today. At the request of the Iraqi government and in coordination with France's allies in the region, the Chammal operation is based on two complementary pillars:
- "training" for the benefit of Iraqi national security units.
- "support" of local forces engaged on the ground against Daesh.
