• The Day After Mosul: Lessons from Kirkuk

    While the military campaign to expel ISIS from the Iraqi city of Mosul proceeds apace, officials in the country and abroad are concerned with the future of the city and its surroundings once the terrorist group is eliminated. To discuss the "day after" challenges once the battle for Mosul is over, the Institute hosted Gov. Najmaldin Karim, the governor of Iraq's Kirkuk province, in a policy forum on Nov. 14, 2016. The conversation was moderated by Lafer Fellow Michael Knights, who had recently returned from a two-week trip to Iraq. Kirkuk -- often described as a flashpoint for future Arab-Kurdish tensions -- has weathered the Islamic State storm relatively well, becoming a safe haven for many of the Arabs who have fled the terrorist onslaught since 2014. Najmaldin Karim was elected gov...

  • Iraq: Fears that ISIL fighters could regroup in Kirkuk

    Iraq: Fears that ISIL fighters could regroup in Kirkuk It has been six months since Iraqi forces launched an offensive to retake the city of Mosul from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The army is surrounding the old city, but is having to rethink its tactics because many civilians are still trapped inside. There are also fears that fighters pushed out of the city could regroup elsewhere. One of those places is the oil-rich province of Kirkuk, where ISIL still controls many towns and villages.

    A teenager suspected of wearing a suicide vest was arrested by Kurdish security forces in the city of Kirkuk on Sunday night. The vest was dismantled by the security forces, who removed it from his body in the middle of the street before arresting the teenager and driving him away in a police truck. Earlier in the day, another suicide bomber targeted the Jaafar Sadiq Shia shrine in Wasit neighbourhood, in an attack that left four people wounded after the bomber blew himself up. Although suspected of trying to target worshipers at the mosque, the assailant was prevented from entering and forced to detonate his vest at the gate as police were firing at him.

  • Fault Lines - On the brink: Iraq, Kurdistan and the Battle for Kirkuk

    In this episode of Fault Lines Josh Rushing travels to Northern Iraq to look at one of the most serious divides the country faces. Kurds and Arabs are poising themselves for a face off in the North over land, oil and power. Kirkuk, a city rich in natural resources that may represent up to one-quarter of Iraq's oil reserves, is the centre knot in a tug of war between the Kurdish Regional Government and central Baghdad. The Kurds and central Baghdad are both keenly aware that Kirkuk's oil would be enough of an economic resource to allow Kurdistan to finance a move for autonomy. Could this divide threaten to bring down the state of Iraq? Could the Kurdish Peshmerga and Iraqi army ever face off in a civil war? Will any political solution emerge?

Najmaldin Karim was elected governor of Kirkuk province in 2011 after years of service as a pioneering Kurdish activist, Peshmerga medic, and opposition leader during the Saddam Hussein era. Under his tenure, the province has drastically improved services such as electricity and water, built numerous schools and hospitals, and taken major defensive efforts to prevent terrorist infiltration. After immigrating to the United States four decades ago and completing a medical residency at George Washington University, Dr. Karim cofounded the Kurdish National Congress of North America, established the Washington Kurdish Institute, worked with the Senate and State Department to provide Kurdish-language programming on Voice of America, and made frequent appearances on major news outlets. Michael Knights has traveled extensively in Iraq and the Gulf states, published widely on security issues for major media outlets such as Jane's IHS, and regularly briefs U.S. government policymakers and U.S. military officers on regional security affairs. Dr. Knights worked as the head of analysis and assessments for a range of security and oil companies, directing information collection teams in Iraq, Libya, and Yemen. He has worked extensively with local military and security agencies in Iraq, the Gulf states, and Yemen.
