Georgia will withdraw its entire 2,000-strong military contingent from Iraq within three days to help battle South Ossetian separatist rebels according to a senior Georgian military official. The Georgian military has claimed downing 10 Russian aircraft and destroying 30 Russian tanks in two days of fighting. Georgia has so far defeated all attacks on the upper part of the critical Kodori gorge.
