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 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.

"The president of the Kurdish region of northern Iraq has asked his parliament to prepare for a referendum on independence, potentially paving the way for the break-up of the country. Masoud Barzani, president of the Kurdistan Regional Government, called on parliament on Thursday to form an independent electoral commission that would start organising a referendum on independence for the semi-autonomous region. "It will strengthen our position and will be a powerful weapon in our hands," he said."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more here from Al Jazeera: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2014/07/iraq-kurds-call-independence-referendum-201473125010428418.html ********** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

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?

"Islamic militants who seized cities and towns vowed Thursday to march on Baghdad to settle old scores, joined by Saddam Hussein-era loyalists and other disaffected Sunnis capitalizing on the government's political paralysis over the biggest threat to Iraq's stability since the U.S. withdrawal. Trumpeting their victory, the militants also declared they would impose Shariah law in Mosul and other areas they have captured. In northern Iraq, Kurdish security forces moved to fill the power vacuum — taking over an air base and other posts abandoned by the military in the ethnically mixed city of Kirkuk."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more here from Sameer N Yacoub & Adam Schreck / AP / The Telegraph: http://www.macon.com/2014/06/12/3145003/islamic-gunmen-push-into-ir...
