The first clashes between the Iraqi army and the Kurds in Kirkuk

77
Between the Iraqi troops that entered the province of Kirkuk and the Kurdish units of the Peshmerga, clashes occurred, RIA News message channel Al-Sumaria.




Clashes occurred between the armed forces of Iraq and the Peshmerga in the industrial region of the southern part of the province,
said a military source channel.

According to media reports, the Kurds managed to set fire to four vehicles of the Iraqi army.

At the same time, the Peshmerga was ordered not to attack first.

President Barzani ordered all units of the Peshmerga not to initiate clashes, but if the paramilitaries opened fire, the Peshmerga was given the green light to use all the possibilities to resist them,
the adviser to Kurdish President Hemin Hawrami said.

On Monday night, Iraqi Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief Heydar al-Abadi ordered security officials to ensure security at military bases and government facilities in Kirkuk province. He also asked the military to avoid confrontation with the Peshmerga.

Earlier, Baghdad accused the Kurds of using non-state formations for the defense of Kirkuk, in particular, the Turkish Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), calling it a declaration of war.

The leadership of the Kurdish region has denied the charges.

        Who will feel bad? The Kurds have no chance against Turkey, Iran and Iraq. And if in Syria they decide to restrain them, the game for them will end even with the support of the United States.

                It is what it is. The main thing is that the war goes on without their direct participation. And who is fighting is not just the tenth, but the twentieth.

        Kurds will have a hard time against Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran. They will be pushed into the mountains, but the Russian Federation’s Dzerzor’s oil fields must be received. It is necessary to recoup the company and the restoration of Syria requires funds. And the US should get a shish.

      Rather the opposite.
      A US-led international coalition has warned that any military force that attempts to attack Kirkuk will be attacked by coalition forces.
      According to the head of the Kirkuk Provincial Council Security Committee, Azad Jabbar, the coalition has notified the Iraqi armed forces.
      The Security Council of Iraqi Kurdistan said on Saturday that Shi’d Hashd al-Shaabi militias supported by Baghdad are threatening to attack the Kurdish Peshmerga forces south of Kirkuk after midnight.

        Not a single concession for oil production, by the way, is Shiites (which the Americans actually
        brought to power) they were not given: tenders went to the British and Chinese.
        Iraqi Sunnis demand autonomy within Iraq (in the Sunni triangle, whence

          The Kurds are the army went through the hardest 3 summer war. Motivated army with the spirit of victories. The army is many times superior in manpower and equipment. Even if the United States imposes a ban on the supply of military equipment, this will not help the Kurds. Especially the Kurds do not particularly help now. For Turkey will block any supply - this is understandable. Iran, too - plus Trump himself burned all the bridges with Iran. And Iran has actually imposed a blockade on Kurdistan - closing the border on entry and exit.

            So the Kurds have the spirit of victory. They knocked ISIS out of all their
            (and neighboring cities) even when the Iraqi army fled from ISIS in a panic.
            As soon as the Iraqi army delves into Kurdistan, ISIS in the Sunni
            cities where he has widespread support, will again raise his head.
            Shiites have to keep garrisons in all cities repelled by ISIS.
            It seems to me that the Iraqi army is "dizzy with success."
            Maybe they’ll take Kirkuk (where half of the population is Kurds and half are Sunnis),
            but I won’t be sure that they won’t hold for a long time.

            Shiite police are thugs without brakes, like ISIS.
            If they begin to commit atrocities in the Kurdish territories, as ISIS did, the mood
            in the world will jump sharply for the Kurds. And if the States stop helping the Shiites and move
            on the side of the Kurds - that's it.
            In my opinion, Barazani has good chances for the state. The rest of the Kurds have little chance.

              There are not many chances for the state. Nearly, access to the sea is needed so that oil does not pump through foreign territory. Now they will impose a blockade on all sides and see what Barzani will sing about. Although, admittedly, the Kurds are sorry. Too soon Barzani began to sing about independence. It was necessary to do this de facto, and then de jure.

            That was until 2014. Then the Americans put a lot of effort into the military training of Shiites,
            and they fought back all the cities easily captured by ISIS.

            1200 PKK fighters arrived to help the Kurds of Kirkuk.
            What irony is that part of Iraqi Kurds from the PUK merges Kirkuk, and the eternal enemies of the PKK barzanists come to the aid of the Barzani peshmerga despite the differences of 30 years.

    What else should the Kurds do? There is no state, no production, no oil, no work, although I’m not sure that they would not. So they have fun while the states give humanitarian aid and democratic aid

      They have everything, but now they are asked to share.
      Iraqi security forces launched a “major operation” in the Kurdish region of Kirkuk to take control of a strategic military base and oil fields, according to Kurdish and Iraqi officials.

      The goal of the offensive at the beginning of Monday was to take control of the Kurdish-controlled K1 air base, west of Kirkuk, Lt. Col. Sal Al-Kinani, the 9th Panzer Division of the Iraqi army, Reuters reported.

      According to state television, Iraqi forces took control of “vast areas” in the oil-rich region without any opposition from Kurdish Peshmerga militants.

      Earlier, the Kurdistan Security Council stated that Iraqi forces and members of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), paramilitary groups, mainly consisting of Shiite militias trained by Iran, were moving from Taza, south of Kirkuk, in a "major operation."

      "Their intention is to enter the city and take over (and) the K1 base and oil fields"

    Well, so far nothing has begun. The Kurds were politely asked to return back what they had captured during the war years. Kurds began to rest. They are kicked out by force from the territory they seized.

    Base K1 captured without a fight.
    We have already entered the industrial area of ​​Kirkuk.
    Kurdoguber Kirkuk urged the entire male population to defend the city and drove north on his Mercedes, he didn’t.
    Barzani issued for his order "Masters of the Multi-Way" - to defend the territories steadily, not to open fire.

    As a result, the Iraqi operation is going well so far. Focal resistance is provided mainly by radical cells (forces that are in opposition to Barzani).

    Kurds are not our problem. With them in Syria it is necessary to do autonomy (but Assad must control the oil fields).
    And the Turks and Iranians will still set Russia up (there is no need to build illusions about the "faithful" allies and there will be no subsequent disappointments).

    More in this "tangle" everyone will be interested in Russia's participation.

      To whom ???
      Of course, the conflict has every chance to develop into a full-fledged war.
      First, both sides are highly motivated.
      Secondly, the prize is very tasty - a fatty piece of oil industry, at least.
      Thirdly, almost all regional players are interested in the conflict, Iran, Turkey, Israel, not to mention the United States.
      At the same time, the Kurds already have certain advantages. First of all, the unification of previously opposing political groups in the face of an external threat. Even the rkkashniki sent several thousand fighters to defend Kirkuk.
      In addition, Erbil may now be trumpeting about the military aggression from Baghdad.
      And the Shiites now have a war on two fronts. Merry business.

    The fact that the Iraqi government, as it were, the creation of the Americans ??? - I agree, judging by how events are developing, the Americans here are pretty scared ... b. Sami used to throw everyone !!! and here they can get a similar answer. The question is ... nothing personal is just a business, wards will choose WHERE TO FAVOR.
    For the Kurds - it seems to me that this "gin" has already flown out of the bottle !!! Moreover, he is now deceived in his expectations, so very angry !!! armed better than before and motivated by the most - the most !!!
    A single or group of countries that can qualify for the role of a JUDGE, PEACEKEEPER, .... in short an AUTHORITY for everyone, is not there !!!
    If there is no real SILENCE on all or many problems of the region, and there are MUCH arsonists, there is no need to wait for peace.
    Iran is a complex religious and secular education ... one thing can be recognized, society is rather monolithic, motivated and effectively managed. While everything is so, it’s useless to go to them with your own rules and advice .... and an attempt at military aggression will not bring significant dividends (YES), and for many it may end in disaster.

    This is not my desire to humiliate the army of Iraq.
    Practice has shown.
    About the north wind is hypothetically possible but absolutely inexpedient.

    Night attack.

    The 16th and 6th Peshmerga brigades of the Patriotic Union left their positions without a fight in Dakuk south of Kirkuk on the orders of the clique of the widow of Talabani.

    Kurds deserve their state. At a meeting of leaders in Tehran (1943), this question was an "edge". During the "division" of the Ottoman Empire after the 1st World War, Kurdistan was divided. The USSR at one time supported the Kurds, thanks to him, Kurdish autonomy also appeared. One of the "connected" was even Primakov (in his youth). From Barzani, dates from one plate ate. The formation of an independent Kurdistan is a matter of time. And unlike Russia and Iran, Israel and the United States "saddled" this issue. Although, I repeat, the USSR has done a lot in this direction.

    The Kurds (Iraqi) had a real chance to build a combat-ready army when oil was for 100 bucks per barrel.
    Instead, they went "all the way": fancy Mercia, palaces, private jets. A "peshmerga" choked on hunger. Still in addition, Barzani and Talabani were at odds with each other because of oil rigs. Then the Turks blocked the “fender”, and oil prices fell. So they remained with the "broken trough" until they "arrived" the Lord from the United States and Israel ....

    The Iraqi army, in the course of a military operation against the Kurds in Kirkuk on Monday, took control of a power plant, industrial area, gas processing plant and a number of other facilities in this oil province.

    "The control over the gas facility of the Northern Gas Company (NGC), the police center, the Kirkuk power station, and the filter station near the gas facility has been established. Units continue to advance," the Iraqi command said on Facebook.
    The military also claimed that they had recaptured the industrial area, a suburb of Kirkuk Baiji, the village of Turkulan, and two checkpoints from Kurdish militias

    On Monday night, Iraqi Prime Minister and Commander-in-Chief Haider al-Abadi ordered the military to ensure security at military bases and government facilities in the disputed Kurds in the province of Kirkuk. At the same time, he ordered the army to cooperate with Kurdish militia units and to avoid confrontation. However, Kurdish media reports that armed clashes between the two sides have begun

    There will be guys. Only they will offer - our amers will immediately take their place. Iraq has always been in the zone of our interests. Both oil and location, the same transit to Syria ... We Iraq, and so at the first request we supported and we support. Remember, the Americans delayed the supply of F-16. We drove the Su-25 in a week, just asked.
