ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The Kurdistan Region Security Council announced in a tweet on Wednesday that they have been receiving “dangerous messages” that the Iraqi forces including Shiite militia Hashd al-Shaabi were preparing “major attacks” from several sides against Kurdistan.

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.”

WHY the F is our security council giving away their intelligence advantage? The appropriate response would've been to quietly reinforce all those fronts and give the Iraqi bastards a nasty surprise when they attack.

All you have to do is brutally break them the first time they attack you, they will loose the will to fight if you stand firm and aggressive the first few weeks. you can't be afraid to loose people and equipment in those first few weeks

You want Kurdistan? here's your chance but you'll have to fight and die for it

this is good because the records will show who attacked first, you guys have been constantly calling for dialog for a month and this is their response. remind them that when they loose half of Iraq later
