Military Review

Kurds blamed Baghdad for preparing military operation in Kirkuk

10
The leadership of the Kurdish region has accused the Iraqi authorities of preparing a military operation to restore control in the province of Kirkuk, reports RIA News.




We receive dangerous reports that Iraqi forces, including Iraq’s al-Hashd al-Shaabi’s Shiite militia, and federal police are preparing for a major attack south-west of Kirkuk and north of Mosul in Kurdistan,
tweeted the Iraqi Kurdistan security council.

The province of Kirkuk is not officially part of the Kurdish autonomy, but is actually controlled by the Peshmerga formations. On the eve of the independence referendum, the Kurds increased the presence of their militia in Kirkuk.

In turn, Baghdad announced the dismissal of the head of the province of Kirkuk and decided to send troops to the region.

Recall that in Iraqi Kurdistan 25 September a referendum on independence was held, in which more than 90% of voters voted for the separation of autonomy from Iraq. A referendum was declared illegitimate in Baghdad.

      I wonder how this operation will be called in Baghdad, maybe anti-terrorism?
      ATO in Iraq! And Washington-backed separatists ...

        not in the eyebrow, but in the eye, but for phasington, if necessary, they will be fighters for "freedom" and "democracy" (oil rigs) (only overseas sorcerers are so lying that they have less and less freedom of maneuver)

    (The leadership of the Kurdish region accused the Iraqi authorities of preparing a military operation to restore control in the province of Kirkuk, reports.)

    In principle, this is the right of the central government in war. But this is done clumsily according to American patterns. In Syria, the situation is different, there the Kurds agreed to negotiations on the future territorial and political structure of the country. It is thought that the discussion will focus on the autonomy of the Kurds, subject to the territorial integrity of Syria, if the Anglo-Saxons do not cheat.

    It seems that Russia will have to take part in a military conflict in Iraq. Without Russia, the confrontation is unlikely to be resolved. It is necessary to negotiate here.

        The fact is that Russia has good relations with both the Kurds and the Iraqi leadership. Our business is both there and there. They can’t live without Russia.

          what kind of relations with the leadership of Iraq, these are puppets, and the power of this power was clearly visible in 13-14, when they handed over the oil-bearing areas to the bearded almost without a fight, they are now bustling. So is this a big question for Russia? there is enough bunting, which has to be solved, but it is necessary to be more careful with the Kurds (Kurds, Catalans, Scots, the Northern League in Italy), any kind of round dance with such round dances will fall to pieces, because. Our country is also not mono-ethnic, do not forget this.

            It is clear that this is a futile argument, we will look at the final results of this confrontation, and a conclusion will be drawn in any case.
