  • UPDATE - IRAQ. Kirkuk's Kurds fearful after Iraq forces takeover

    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...

  • What does the future hold for Iraq's Kurds after territory seized? - Inside Story

    The Iraqi government has seized control of Kirkuk from the Kurds, taking just a day to take charge of the multi-ethnic city and the oilfields surrounding it. Kurdish forces have since rapidly withdrawn from several contested cities and towns, leaving Iraqi forces and their Shia militia allies in charge. Last month voters in Iraq's northern Kurdish region as well as some disputed areas overwhelmingly voted to secede. But Baghdad, as well as neighbours Tehran and Ankara, has fiercely opposed the move. So what will this mean for Iraq's Kurds?

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 ...

    (27 Feb 2015) In gunsmith Bahktiyar Sadr-Aldeen's workshop in the Kurdish city of Irbil, every weapon has a story. Sadr-Aldeen, an Iraqi Kurd, has seen business increase by 50 percent since last June, when Islamic State militants took over Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, 82 kilometres (52 miles) west of Irbil. The Kurdish fighting force known as the pershmerga has been at war against the Islamic State militant group ever since. Sadr-Aldeen says there is "no professional company" to fix all the weapons that "naturally break" during the fighting. "That is why I fix them. We cannot just throw them away, because we are in a war," he explained. Aged 36, Sadr-Aldeen already has more than a quarter-century of experience, making him the peshmerga's top gunsmith in the region. He says h...

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.

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 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.

(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 fighters fought off the advance and destroyed 10 humvees and an Abrams tank. There were no casualty reports, but there were ambulances inside the town. Iraq's federal authority claims Altun Kupri for itself as it is part of the areas acquired by the Kurds in 2014, when Iraqi soldiers gave up their posts in the face of an Islamic State group advance. Altun Kupri is the last town on the federal side of the border on the road between Kirkuk and Irbil. Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani championed a non-binding vote for Kurdish independence in September. Baghdad condemned it and instead demanded the return of the disputed territories, precipitating the crisis.

An ISIS vehicle approaching a secure area held by Kurdish forces was sent airborne exploding in mid-air. According to Powershift Magazine, upon arrival at the Kurdish military base in the southern part of Kirkuk, Pershmerga Forces got word of an ISIS suicide bomber headed towards their base. The Kurdish forces then phoned in and initiated an artillery strike on the vehicle. The footage, posted to video-sharing website LiveLeak, shows the driver close to the checkpoint before a Kurdish forces send what appears to be a truck catapulting some 300 feet (100m) in the air before it explodes. The Kurdish military otherwise known as Pershmerga, translated means the ‘one who confronts death,’ has been one of the groups in Iraq fighting ISIS in the area of Kirkuk. Kurdish forces have been working together with the US and Iraqi military to help defeat ISIS in the region after the terrorist hold of significant cities in the country. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

"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-iraqs.html

(27 Feb 2015) In gunsmith Bahktiyar Sadr-Aldeen's workshop in the Kurdish city of Irbil, every weapon has a story. Sadr-Aldeen, an Iraqi Kurd, has seen business increase by 50 percent since last June, when Islamic State militants took over Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, 82 kilometres (52 miles) west of Irbil. The Kurdish fighting force known as the pershmerga has been at war against the Islamic State militant group ever since. Sadr-Aldeen says there is "no professional company" to fix all the weapons that "naturally break" during the fighting. "That is why I fix them. We cannot just throw them away, because we are in a war," he explained. Aged 36, Sadr-Aldeen already has more than a quarter-century of experience, making him the peshmerga's top gunsmith in the region. He says he now fixes eight to 10 weapons a day compared to a few during his pre-war business. For three days, Sadr-Aldeen has been trying to polish the blood off an M16 rifle brought in by a pershmerga soldier last week. "It is an American made gun given to the Iraqi army in Mosul. Da'esh took it. It was in the hands of Da'esh (the Islamic State group) and five days ago it fell in the hands of peshmerga," he explained. Located in a cellar in Irbil's bazaar, Sadr-Aldeen's shop is a well-known spot for peshmerga soldiers. Darawan Abu Bakr, a 28 year-old fighter, on leave from his post outside the city of Kirkuk, is a regular customer. Visiting the shop to have a weapon fixed, Abu Bakr said, "I have brought other weapons to Bakhtiyar (Sadr-Aldeen) as well and he repaired all of them. He is very good at his job. None of the guns he repaired have malfunctioned again. They all worked perfectly." Now a father of five, Sadr-Aldeen has been working in the shop, which was started by his father, since he was a child. He took over the business when he was 11-years-old after his father was arrested by the forces of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. His father spent 10 years in prison and today is too old to work. Sadr-Aldeen also modifies weapons, taking special pride in his work fixing Kalashnikov rifles. He showed off one weapon with a shortened barrel that makes it lighter and capable of firing more powerful bursts of ammunition. "I modified every single part of it. The cover, the folding arm, the chamber, I made it fourteen years ago. It is all handmade," he said. He also does not limit his work to his shop. Sometimes Sadr-Aldeen goes out to the front lines himself, mostly to repair heavy weapons that cannot be transported. The peshmerga send a car and take him out to the front line to do his work. He said he does not charge for the battlefield repairs, saying that is his way of supporting the cause.
