The Korean troops scheduled to be dispatched to Iraq, the “Zaitoon,” will be commanded by General Hwang Eui-don and will be officially organized on February 23. Its 3,600 crack soldiers will be educated as to the situations, language, customs, and diverse types of contingencies of Iraq for a month, and sent to Kirkuk, Iraq in early April (advance contingent) and the end of April (main contingent). At the special warfare forces’ education center in Korea, tailors are measuring the size of desert combat uniforms for each soldier.
