Tehran’s political and military involvement in Syria and Iraq have helped to turn their state structures upside-down.
Tehran’s strategy has been to use its Shia militias to assist the PKK and exploit the terror group against Turkey, which it views as a threat in Iraq.
A civilian contractor with the US-led coalition was killed and eight others, including a US service member, were wounded after at least three rockets hit areas between the civilian Erbil International Airport in northern Iraq and a nearby base.
Turkey aims to eliminate Daesh and PKK terrorists in the region to ensure security along its borders and live in peace with its neighbours.
Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq's leader Barzani stated a group of YPG/PKK agents from Syria were denied entry into northern Iraq; they had launched an attack using heavy weaponry on the Peshmerga forces.
While protests have occasionally hit the Kurdish region since 2015, the latest demonstrations have been more intense.
"We are waiting for the Sinjar Agreement to be implemented, but it has not yet been applied," Prime Minister of Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq Masrour Barzani says.
Demonstrations against the Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq (KRG) and the region's main parties broke out last week in towns across the northeastern region of Sulaimaniyah.
The two sides sign an agreement to take back control of Sinjar, which has become a hotbed of the PKK's terror activities in northern Iraq.
The US-listed terror group attacked Peshmerga forces in Iraq's Duhok province Wednesday morning, killing one and injuring two others.
A recent agreement between Erbil and Baghdad on the status of Sinjar region has appeared to be a tipping point for recent clashes between the PKK terrorists and the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG).
It was another hellish day in Baghdad as Hashd al Shaabi attacked the KDP office in the Green Zone.
