Kurds: In addition to the Iraqi army, Iranian special forces entered Kirkuk

66
SkyNews reported that the Iraqi troops, who had previously begun their advancement through the neighborhoods of Kirkuk, squeezing the forces of the Kurdish militia, took the city under their complete control. It is stated that the state flag of Iraq is hoisted over the building of the Kirkuk administration. Earlier, the authorities of Iraqi Kurdistan declared that Kirkuk is part of the Kurdish autonomy, which voted for independence from Baghdad in a referendum.


It is noted that the Iraqi troops and representatives of the national police, while advancing in Kirkuk, practically did not meet with serious resistance from the so-called Peshmerga units (Kurdish armed formations).

At the moment, the fate of the head of Kirkuk Nadjim al-Din Karim, who actually stood for autonomy, is being clarified. According to some reports, he could leave Kirkuk and move to the administrative center of Iraqi Kurdistan - Erbil. Officially, these data are not confirmed.

Recall that the residents of Kirkuk earlier took part in the referendum, despite the fact that Kirkuk is not de jure included in the Kurdish autonomy. The Iraqi Prime Minister ordered troops to be brought to Kirkuk, which eventually happened.

Kurds: In addition to the Iraqi army, Iranian special forces entered Kirkuk


Photos are published in which Iraqi soldiers can be seen in the office of the head of Kirkuk. About the reaction in Erbil is not reported.

Attention is drawn to the statement of the Peshmerga command, in which it is alleged that units of the Iranian special forces under the command of General Qasim Suleymani entered the city together with the Iraqi army.

      Foreign territory, so the Kurds Kirkuk surrendered!

            Kurdish leaders do not want to enter into direct armed confrontation with official Iraq because they understand that the only chance to bargain at the center is only by peaceful means. Otherwise, they will simply be destroyed.
            In general, it’s time to erect a monument to the Kurds Crying Peshmerga smile

                    Iraq is now looking more and more towards Iran - there is one faith, there are only enemies, with Kurds both have problems. So it’s not a fact that the Americans allowed, they themselves could work. IMHO

    Nenad laugh at the Kurds, this is a wise, though not popular decision of their leaders. Fix in a pickaxe and arrange a second Mosul they could. There, a part of the Kurdish population, although not large. Just too big a piece for Iraqi Kurdistan. It was obvious from the start. Yes, and provided this piece to them on a silver platter of igil. In fact, they did not fight against the Kurds. Big neighbors would not allow them to sit there for a long time. But this in no way justifies their disunity.

    Once I was for Kurdistan. And now I see that you can’t give them a bunch. Unpredictable, corrupt and do a lot of stupid things. I don’t want to offend the Kurds personally, but they are not ready in any way for their state. It will be an eternal war with everyone around.

    )))) A month ago, Mikhan offered to transfer the ATGM and MANPADS to the Kurds, but today he scolds them with the last words .. However, .. laughing

    The Kurds must first resolve issues between themselves. They themselves were divided into 4 groups:
    1) those who support Barzani, that is, they want independence.
    2) those who support the ideas of Talabani .. wide autonomy within Iraq.
    3) those who support the PKK, supporters of the creation of Great Kurdistan on the territory of 4 states, moreover, the communist government. In their struggle, rely on terror.
    4) those who are against the independence of Kurdistan (there are also such., And there are many of them)

    Tell the bright minds of our forum, how can one be defeated in this situation? No way. The groups are at war with each other, sometimes openly conduct hostilities between themselves.

    Kirkuk was surrendered because the Arab and Turkic population of the city went against the Kurds, and Talabani supporters simply left their positions and retreated to the controlled territories. The barzani’s supporters also retreated, though they fought a bit, but the PKK militants took all the blow and suffered huge losses , because they’re not fit to fight against the regular army. Their trump card is terror.

      Barzani holds money (more than 20 billion) and business in the United States, and Talabani has business in Iran (this is the main reason why many Kurdish groups left Kirkuk without a fight) ........ this is the difference.

    The Kurds surrendered Kirkuk because it was not originally their territory.

    They are also eastern people and understand that it is better to trade than to fight.
