Military Review

Iraqi Prime Minister ordered the army to leave Kirkuk

24
The head of the Iraqi government, Haider Al-Abadi, ordered the withdrawal of army units from Kirkuk, which a few days ago came under the full control of official Baghdad. The Al-Arabiya TV channel reports that al-Abadi has ordered security in the city by law enforcement agencies, including counter-terrorism agencies.


Prior to the order of Haider al-Abadi, the units of the 9 armored division and the military police of Iraq were in Kirkuk for more than two days. They drove the forces of the Kurdish Peshmerga armed forces out of the city. According to the Kurds themselves, Iranian armed forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps also entered Kirkuk. Also in the operation to take Kirkuk, the forces of the so-called “popular mobilization” (“Hashd al-Shaabi”) —the Shiite militia — took part.

According to the Prime Minister of Iraq, declarations on the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan are “a thing of the past.”

Iraqi Prime Minister ordered the army to leave Kirkuk


Against this background, the Kurdish press publishes a report stating that “unknown aircraft” had bombed the positions of Shiite formations in the Kirkuk region the night before. Attention is drawn to the fact that, according to the statements of the Kurds, the United States "is neutral in relation to the current situation."

    This is it in vain - now there are either Kurds, or the igil will show up, a holy place does not exist! They will not leave Kirkuk alone now for a long time!

      Mashinina after the victory, divide the oil-filled territory littered with mines and corpses. But the owner is not yet. Well, let's hope that both Iraq and Iran find a common denominator.

      Here another problem is outlined - gangbang. For they annoyed everyone around them, and even Americans do not like witnesses.

    since 2003, 700 kurodes have moved to Kirkuk. before that, mainly Arabs and Turkoman lived there. proudly with a population of 000 people. in 750 years the population has doubled due to Kurdish occupation - it cannot be called otherwise. Arab and Turkmen communities did not participate in the governance of the region.

    I don’t think that all the Kurds who are settled will be expelled. so slowly the Kurds will push further.

    another thing is interesting: did Iraqi military formations take control of the entire territory occupied by the Kurds? that is, beyond the borders of Kurdish autonomy?

      almost a million people cannot come from nowhere
      it’s obvious that these are not occupiers, but primitive refugees, for example from Turkey,
      they had a simple choice, either to be killed by the Turks or to flee to Syria
      complicated everything in the Middle East ....

        they came from Sulaymaniyah and Erbil to explore the oil-rich regions of Kirkuk. where is the oil there is money. during the retreat of the Peshmerga somewhere around 100 thousand left with them fearing robberies and killings by Shiites and local Arabs and Turkoman

    It is noteworthy that, according to the Kurds, the United States "takes a neutral position in relation to the current situation."

    No wonder. They always betrayed their "allies." Another made sure that the Anglo-Saxons are non-negotiable.

      in general, they warned the Kurds about the referendum.
      unforgettable there, Exxomobil concluded large development contracts with the Kurds. see they agreed with the Iraqis, otherwise they would not have allowed

      so Iraq is also an ally of the United States, Mosul coalition planes bombed regularly, and the American division participated in the assault

    Q.E.D. Without US Air Support Iraqi
    the army did not deter Kirkuk. But she will not be.
    And they wisely retreated, not waiting for the Kurds to pull up reinforcements

      what are you speaking about. Talabani agreed with Iraq. all spite Barzani. there, even from the center, they will directly give them money, bypassing Erbil.
      if only policemen approached, they would also occupy the whole pick

        In addition to Kirkuk, the Kurds still have many oil fields.
        And they need to negotiate with the Iraqi government about
        oil transit south and export. If you agree amicably, then
        leave Kirkuk "for later." If not, then there is nothing to lose, they can
        and beat back.

          The gut is thin. Without striated Kurds, nothing. Against four countries, squeezed from all sides - a futile occupation butting. Kurds will remain those who were before - mountain Turks. Without oil and surrounded by enemies. This is the price of licking the American anus.
