  • 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?

    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...

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.

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 on the day of the independence referendum, when they danced and sang in the streets. Though the referendum was opposed by international allies, Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) President Masoud Barzani was confident its outcome would give his government leverage to negotiate secession. Kirkuk is seen by many Kurds as the future capital of an independent Kurdish state. Including it in the referendum was widely seen as a unilateral move to consolidate Kurdish control. Peshmerga fighters seized Kirkuk in 2014 after Iraqi security forces fled, leaving the region's oilfields vulnerable to Islamic State militants who had swept across northern Iraq. But any notion of consolidated Kurdish power was quashed on Monday when Kurdish forces quietly withdrew, allowing the Iraqis to retake the city and other disputed territories claimed by both the central government in Baghdad and the Kurds. Kurds in Kirkuk feel betrayed by their political leaders and humiliated by Baghdad, which forcibly displaced them from the city under late dictator Saddam Hussein.

And turning now to the Middle East... Iraqi police have clashed with Islamic militants south of Kirkuk,... in an attempt to wrestle control for the oil rich city. According to a police source, ten militants were killed in the gun battle, while six policemen were wounded by sniper fire. Media footage showed the local police chief... with a group of officers... defending their position in the outskirts of the southern districts. Officials say Kurdish forces are in full control of Kirkuk... even after the federal army abandoned its bases there. The move came after Iraqi soldiers fled from the second largest city of Mosul as several other towns and cities fell... one by one... to hundreds of Sunni insurgents... most from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS. In a statement on Wednesday, ISIS said its fighters were now advancing on the capital Baghdad.

أبنة جلال طالباني السيدة آلاء رئيس حزب الاتحاد الوطني الكردستاني تكشف تنحي البارازاني واسرار انسحاب البيشمركة من كركوك.. ● تضافرت العديد من الأسباب التي قادت الإقليم إلى هذا المصير، ودفعته نحو إجراء استفتاء كان بمثابة الشرارة التي ربما تحرق جميع من كان يحلمون بالانفصال، بعضها ذات مغزى سياسي والآخر اقتصادي، إلا أنها جميعها قادت إلى هذه اللحظة الفارقة في تاريخ إقليم كردستان. سياسيًا.. كان غياب التنظيم المؤسسي للعمل السياسي داخل الإقليم أحد أبرز أسباب تشتته وإضعافه بهذه الصورة التي ظهر عليها، إذ اقتصر العمل داخليًا على مجموعات منفصلة ومخترقة من الداخل وهو ما أثبتته التجربة، هذا بخلاف الفشل في تطويق حجم الخلاف مع حكومة بغداد وما كان لها من تداعيات على مسألة الاستقرار السياسي الداخلي. كذلك سوء تقدير وتقييم الموقف السياسي للدول الحلفاء كان له دور محوري في تفسير ملامح الصورة، حيث لعب الإقليم على وتر العلاقات الوثيقة مع تركيا لا سيما في السنوات الأخيرة، كذلك مع الولايات المتحدة والتي لم تبد موقفًا معارضًا واضحًا من الاستفتاء، مما شجع برزاني على التصميم على إجراء الاستفتاء رغم الرفض الإقليمي له، وهو ما اتضحت نتائجه فيما بعد والتي جاءت على عكس توقعاته لتكشف سوء تقديره للأمور. وفي سياق سوء التقدير أيضًا فقد أغفل رئيس الإقليم التداعيات المحتملة لخطوة الاستفتاء، لا سيما فيما يتعلق بالاستعدادات العسكرية والأمنية والاقتصادية لما يمكن أن يترتب على ذلك داخليًا كان أو خارجيًا، علمًا بأن الكثير من التحذيرات قد أشارت لذلك قبل إجراء الاستفتاء، ومع ذلك لم يضعها برزاني في دائرة الاهتمام، مما أوقعه في هذا المأزق بسهولة ويسر ودون أي مشقة من قوات الجيش العراقي. اقتصاديًا.. لم ترتق البنية الاقتصادية لأكراد كردستان إلى المغامرة بمثل هذه الخطوة، خاصة أن جميع المعابر الحدودية مع الإقليم تخضع لإملاءات وشروط رافضي الاستفتاء سواء كانت حكومة بغداد أو تركيا أو إيران.. رغم النتائج التي خرج بها الاستفتاء والتي كشفت عن موافقة أغلبية على التوجه نحو الانفصال، إلا أن ما تمخض عنه من مستجدات أزاح الستار عن شرخ كبير في البيت الكردي، فبدلاً من أن يؤدي هذا الاستفتاء إلى تمهيد الطريق لإقامة الدولة الكردية، أو تعزيز القوة التفاوضية للأكراد، أدى إلى انقلاب كارثي في مصير أكراد العراق. وتجسد كواليس سقوط كركوك في أيدي قوات الجيش العراقي والحشد الشعبي حالة الانقسام الواضح في الصف الكردي، وهو ما كشفته صحيفة "واشنطن بوست" حين أشارت إلى "لقاء عاجل عقد في بلدة دوكان المطلة على بحيرة دوكان، جمع كلاً من الرئيس العراقي فؤاد معصوم، الذي ينتمي لحزب الاتحاد الوطني الكردستاني، والزعيم بارزاني، عرض فيه صفقةً من شأنها السماح للقوات العراقية بدخول كركوك"، وبحسب أحد المصادر التي كانت مشاركة في هذا اللقاء فإن "البارزاني غادر اللقاء غاضبًا". ورغم ادعاء الحزبين (الاتحاد والديموقراطي) أنهما متحدان ولن يتفاوضا من جانب واحد، إلا أن الصفقة قد تمت بالفعل، هكذا تقول الصحيفة الأمريكية، التي نقلت عن أحد مسؤولي حزب البارزاني: "لقد طُرِح الأمر بصفته خيارًا، لكن لم تجرِ الموافقة عليه، لقد تعهَّدوا بأنَّهم لم يعقدوا صفقةً مع العراقيين"، إلا أن ملا بختيار، وهو أحد مسؤولي حزب الاتحاد الوطني الكردستاني، فقال: "اتفاق دخول القوات قد مرّر إلى بغداد عبر "وسيط" رفض تسميته، مضيفًا "أنَّه قد حاز موافقة الحزب الديمقراطي الكردستاني"، وهو ما ينفيه الحزب بشدة. انسحاب قوات البيشمركة - التابعة لحزب طالباني - المفاجئ وإفساحها المجال أمام القوات الاتحادية والحشد الشعبي لفرض السيطرة على كركوك - وهي التهمة التي وجهتها وسائل إعلام كردية للحزب الديمقراطي - كشف وفق محللين أن هناك أزمة داخلية متعمقة في الجذور الكردية من الصعب معالجتها في ظل الوضع الراهن ما لم تتغير المعادلات مرة أخرى بوجوه وأسماء جديدة ربما تعكس حالة من التفاؤل نحو الخروج من هذا المأزق الذي يحمل آفاقًا ضبابية حيال مستقبل الأكراد ومصير قضيتهم. آراء الخبراء والمقربين من دوائر صنع القرار داخل إقليم كردستان تشير إلى أن سقوط المدينة جاء نتيجة تنسيق بين بافل الطالباني نجل زعيم الاتحاد الوطني الكردستاني الراحل من جهة، والجنرال الإيراني قاسم سليماني من جهة أخرى، ومن ثم فالنصر الذي حققه سليماني في هذه المدينة يعود الفضل فيه بالدرجة الأولى إلى حزب الطالباني الذي يسيطر بدوره على كركوك والسليمانية، وذلك وفق تقرير سابق لـ"نون بوست". وهكذا بدلاً من أن يجد أكراد كردستان أنفسهم بعيدًا عن العباءة العراقية إذ بهم يستيقظون على تبعية أكثر إجهاضًا لطموحاتهم السياسية، وذلك حين تفرض إيران سيطرتها شبه الكاملة على الإقليم بعد أن وضعت أقدامها في كركوك مرة أخرى بمساندة حليفيها حزب الطالباني وحكومة العبادي، هذا بخلاف تزايد رقعة الثقوب داخل الثوب الكردي والتي تزيد الوضع تأزمًا وتضع الجميع في أزمة حقيقية بما فيهم الحليف التركي.
