Once again, one of the most important oil wells in the Middle East lies within a war zone. Output from Kirkuk fell in mid-October, when Iraqi forces took back control of the northern region’s oilfields from Kurdish security forces, known as Peshmerga, who had been there since 2014. Iraqi engineers took over the positions at the pipelines, replacing the expelled Kurds. "Oil is Iraq's biggest asset. The people live from the oil. Agriculture and everything else declines without it. The oil is th… READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2017/11/02/iraq-and-kurdistan-fight-to-control-oil-rich-kirkuk What are the top stories today?

Iraqi army and Kurdish troops are in a standoff in Kirkuk, a city located in the Kurdistan region, which voted for independence from Iraq last month. Kirkuk holds 10 percent of Iraq’s oil reserves. Washington Post reporter Loveday Morris, who is covering the standoff, joins Hari Sreenivasan via Skype from Baghdad.
Turkmen and Arab shoppers stroll through an open-air food market in an ethnically mixed area of Kirkuk, haggling over the price of tomatoes and gossiping about their neighbours. Ostensibly, it's a normal day in the city of 1 million in northern Iraq. But nearby stand Iraqi Army soldiers, sent by the central government in Baghdad this week to wrest control of the city from Kurds after their vote for independence on Sept. 25. The army's recapture of oil-producing Kirkuk province and other territory across northern Iraq has dismayed the city's Kurds but brought comfort to residents from other ethnic groups. Arab residents of the city who have seen Kirkuk change hands several times before said they now feel safer and more comfortable. The scenes now are a far cry from the Kurds' jubilation...

(20 Oct 2017) Iraqi federal and Kurdish forces exchanged fire at their shared border on Friday, capping a dramatic week of manoeuvres which saw the Kurds hand over territory across northern Iraq. Iraqi forces shelled Kurdish military positions north and south of Altun Kupri, a town of about 9,000 people just outside the country's autonomous Kurdish region, a day after Brigadier General Raad Baddai gave warning he was going to enter the town. Organised Kurdish forces, known as the peshmerga, as well as irregular forces, responded with rocket fire. By midday, Iraq's Defence Ministry said anti-terrorism forces, the federal police and the country's Iranian-backed Popular Mobilisation Front militias had taken the town. But the peshmerga's general command disputed that claim, saying Kurdish ...

According to Iraqi authorities on Saturday, mass graves containing the remains of civilians executed by ISIS have been discovered in the war-torn Iraqi province of Kirkuk. While speaking at the site of the mass graves, which were found in the al-Bakara area about three kilometers north of Hawija, Kirkuk Governor Rakan Saeed said, "We are standing here, where ... at least 400 civilians were dragged, some in their red jumpsuits, and brutally executed by ISIS." Colonel Murtada Abbas of the 60th Brigade in the Iraqi military said that witnesses to the executions led authorities to the graves. http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/11/middleeast/mass-graves-in-kirkuk/index.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Just three weeks after the ballot, the Iraqi army was deployed to reclaim disputed areas held by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters since 2014, including the oil-rich city of 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...

October 2017. #Kurdish Forces have Abandoned Lands they had Controlled since the fall of #SaddamHussein in 2003, allowing #Iraqi Troops to move into Disputed Areas that had been Central to Hopes for an Independent #Kurdistan with expanded borders. In a stunning collapse, #Peshmerga Units loyal to the de facto Kurdish President, #MassoudBarzani, pulled out of the towns of #Bashiqa, #Khanaqin and #Sinjar less than a day after Surrendering the city of #Kirkuk to the Iraqi Military and allied #Shia Forces.
