ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – A frontline Peshmerga commander has threatened to attack a Shiite militia unless it withdraws Thursday from a newly liberated town in Kurdish area of northern Diyala province

Mahmoud Sangawi, leader of Peshmerga forces on the Garmaser front, told Rudaw on Thursday the Shiite militia, known as Hashd al-Shaabi, or Popular Mobilization Units, must retreat south to Saadia town.

“Upon the order of the Garmaser front commander, today is the deadline for the 80 Hashd al-Shaabi fighters to withdraw from the town of Jalawla. If they do not, the Peshmerga will attack them,” said Sangawi.

He added: “Now, the Hashd al-Shaabi militates have started preparations to leave."

Kurdish forces entered the town of Jalawla in November after they launched a major assault on the Islamic State fighters , said Rudaw correspondent in the area.

Their was a deal and they of course broke it, peshmerga forces and shia militias would jointly liberate the towns and villages of Diyala province in November, the shia militias could stay behind in shia villages/towns but leave Kurdish and Sunni towns, and the peshmerga the opposite. The peshmerga held their part of the deal, helped them liberate dozens of shia towns and villages, after the job was done they didn't leave any troops in shia areas, but these backstabbers not only didn't leave Kurdish and Sunni towns but brought in reinforcements, this is the only language these subhumans understand.

What we have to do right now is to buy as much land as we can and get the enemy out of our territory, we have to expand as much as we can and keep it organized.
