Rudaw: Kurdish security council warns of ‘major attacks’ by Iraqi forces on Kurdistan11 October 2017 | 21:59 | FOCUS News Agency
The involved parties plotting to attack the Kurdistan Region are the Hashd al-Shaabi and Iraqi Federal Police from the southern and western part of Kirkuk as well as north Mosul.
The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in a separate statement also warned that “Haider al-Abadi, the prime minister and general commander of the armed forces is to blame for any disputes or violence which may erupt in disputed areas.”
The statement added that Abadi has threatened several times that the Peshmerga “do not have to deter the army and Iraqi armed forces in disputed areas.”
It added that such calls by Abadi are “unconstitutional.”
Abadi on Tuesday warned the Peshmerga against any “confrontation” with Iraqi security forces, including the mainly Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi, in those areas, while calling on the Kurdish fighters to act on orders from the Iraqi government, as there should be “one leadership, not two.”
