Erbil, Baghdad Join Hands Against PKK Terror Group

Clashes in northern Iraq between the PKK terror group and Kurdistan Regional Government are raising fears of an all-out war. The Iraqi central government and KRG have deployed around 6,000 security forces near the Sinjar area to eliminate PKK presence, but that has only escalated the fighting. So could this turn into a full on war that can spell the end of the terror group in the region?
