[size=13]IDPs are welcome in Kirkuk, governor says[/size]
Kirkuk: Iraqis fleeing military operations in Mosul are welcome in Kirkuk, the province’s governor stated Wednesday amid reports that internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been ordered to leave the province in the wake of a deadly IS attack on the city. “I reaffirm, IDPs who fled from Mosul are our guests,” said Najmadin Karim, Kirkuk’s governor, in a joint press conference with Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri in Kirkuk. “We have been receiving IDPs for the past two years.” Jabouri expressed Baghdad’s support for Kirkuk, both in terms of security and supporting the IDPs. “No one should be able to avoid responsibility in terms of reaching IDPs,” he said. “The central government should take necessary measures to help local administrations helping IDPs.” rudaw.net

Mosul: Kurdish forces of Peshmerga entered several villages northeast of Mosul early-Wednesday as operations to regain control of territory from the Islamic State (IS) in Nineveh province continue. Major General Shafiq Chawshin told NRT that Peshmerga forces had entered the villages of Faziliya, Omar Qapchy and Kani Nu. Chawshin said there were no IS fighters in the booby-trapped villages, which militants had rigged with improvised explosive devices. “The engineering teams are defusing Daesh [IS] booby-traps and Peshmerga forces are searching olive groves in the area,” he said. The Major General further stated that commanders believe militants have withdrawn from surrounding villages and headed for the town of Bashiqa. nrttv.com | Ekurd.net

[size=13]Photo of popular Turkish-Kurdish singer found adorning Islamic State bedroom[/size]
Erbil: A picture of Rozhin, an Iraqi Kurdish singer, was found hanging on the wall of a bedroom used by an Islamic State militant in the village of Tiz Kharabi Gawra on the Bashiqa front, northeast of Mosul. A Peshmerga team clearing the village found the photograph of Rozhin with “Kurd from Turkey” written on it, Rudaw reported. From northern Kurdistan, in southeastern Turkey, Rozhin is a popular Kurdish singer. “IS is against humanity and they are against every person and modern Kurds,” said Rozhin, when she was called to ask what she thought about the photo. The Peshmerga offered to take the photo down and give it to Rozhin. She replied, saying she offered her life to the Peshmerga, because “If the Peshmerga were not there, we would be in a different situation now.” rudaw.net | Ekurd.net
[size=13]Peshmerga forces take village northeast of Mosul[/size]
Mosul: Kurdish Peshmerga forces were in control of the village of Abu Jarboa, northeast of Mosul, on Tuesday (October 25), while a family who fled the village spoke of abuse from the Islamic State (IS) militant group. The village lies on the road between Mosul and the town of Bashiqa which is 16 kilometers (10 miles) northeast of Mosul. One man from the village, Farhan Kathem, said punishments were harsh under IS rule. “They would force (women) to cover their faces and men to wear a beard. If you do not have a beard you will be punished with lashes,” he said. nrttv.com
[size=13]700 Kurdish Shabak IDPs arrive at Kurdish forces fronts[/size]
Mosul: Late on Tuesday, hundreds of civilians from the Kurdish Shabak minority arrived at Kurdish Peshmerga front in eastern Mosul after they risked their lives and survived a dangerous journey out of the Islamic State (IS)-held areas. As the Mosul operation continues and the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, alongside the Iraqi army, pushing deeper into the IS-held areas on the outskirt of Mosul, more civilians arrive to seek refuge under the protection of the Kurdish troops. The new group of IDPs was made up of nearly 700 children, women and men all from the Shabak minority, whose home is under the control of the IS jihadists. basnews.com
[size=13]More than 30 IS militants may still be at large in Kirkuk[/size]
Nearly 100 IS militants entered Kirkuk early Friday morning, using the city’s sewage pipes to avoid detection in order to carry out a deadly attack on the city, a Kirkuk security official detailed to Rudaw. IS launched a surprise assault on the city of Kirkuk and the town of Dubis at 3:30 Friday morning, receiving assistance from tens of locals inside the city.  “There are still around 37 IS militants on the run in Kirkuk; our security forces are looking for them”, the Director of Investigation Division at the KDP’s Security Office in Kirkuk, Brigadier General Chato Fazil said. “The militants who attacked Kirkuk have not all been killed. Some of them are still on the run hiding out in Kirkuk. They emerge from time to time,” Chief of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s (PUK) Security Office in Kirkuk, Major General Halkawt Abdulah, said. rudaw.net | Ekurd.net

Kirkuk: At least five IS militants were killed by Kurdish security forces Tuesday night in Kirkuk, as part of military raids on IS militants who had infiltrated the city Friday. “Security forces carried out a raid on the village of Seri Tapa in Laylan town in Kirkuk,” Brig Gen. Sarhad Nadir, chief of Kirkuk Suburban Police, told Rudaw. “Five militants were killed in the raid.” Qadir said they “suspect there will be a few more IS militants in the area.” Warplanes from the US-led coalition are in coordination with security forces in this regard, he added. rudaw.net
