7:37 PM ADMIN
Arbil/ Iraq TradeLink: The Kurdish Presidency criticized the statement of a leading member in the
Iraqi social media organs reported a "supposed" threat uttered by Baqir Jabur al-Zubaidi on the status of the Kurds in the newly liberated areas in Nineveh province.
The media reported that "we have a strong army and popular mobilization force that cannot be stopped by boundaries ".
The Kurdish statement warned the Iraqi popular forces from "repeating" the mistakes of the previous regime of Saddam Hussein.
"The Iraqi forces and the mobilization forces would have not attained the victories without the support of the Kurdish Peshmarga force", the statement added.
The Kurds believe that the statement of Zubaidi was a "hidden threat" to its forces, which announced that they will not leave the grounds outside the boundaries of the Kurdish region and had been liberated from Da'ish (ISIS) organization.
Military analysts believe that the Shiite mobilization forces shall try to "ensure the way that will connect Iran, Iraq , Syria and Lebanon" so that the Iranian movements in these countries shall be safe and far away from any possible future military actions or movements.
They expect that Iran will continue realizing its dreams to create the Shiite Crescent through the mobilization forces.
The Kurdish statement pointed that "there was no counter statement to deny this news by the Higher Islamic Council, which we have historical and militant relations during the past eras".
"If the speaker, Zubaidi, wants a war, our experience is great and proved in our wars against Saddam Hussein", the statement added.
Calls from inside and outside Iraq continued to annex the mobilization forces to the army or police forces, out of fear of turning it int "War Lords" belonging to the paries that have allegiance to Iran.
Current talks inside Iraq reported that this force is expected to be turned into regular force with separate influence, similar to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, with expectations that Iraq is turning to a religious state with greater ties with Iran.
International and local politicians and analysts charged the Shiite mobilization forces of continued atrocities against the Sunni sect in west and north Iraq under the pretext of fighting against Da'ish organization.
