Polish Maj. Gen. Piotr Czerwinski handed over command of Multinational-Division Central-South to Maj. Gen. Edward Gruszka in a ceremony at Camp Echo in Diwaniyah, Iraq, on Feb. 4, officials said Sunday.

The division is responsible for operations in a wide swath of territory and its primary mission, officials said, is to train the 8th Iraqi Army Division, Iraqi police forces and border police.

“I want to say sincerely thank you to the Governors of Diwaniyah, Kut and Babil provinces, to the heads of the Iraqi police and other public institutions,” Czerwinski was quoted as saying in a statement.
