[size=45]BAGHDAD - Zaid Salem, Dry Peace
18 October 2019

[size=45]Iraqi political and government circles in Baghdad share with Kurdish leaders in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, fears described by a close associate of Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi as "serious", the possibility of Ankara to repeat its current operation in the north of Syria, also in northern Iraqi areas, which is the stronghold The PKK militants, especially the foothills of the Qandil, Sinjar, Sedkan, Soran and other northern regions, are distributed to Erbil, Dohuk and Nineveh, especially with previous hints from Turkish officials, that Baghdad has not done its part to prevent the taking of militants. Laborers" Its territory is a springboard to attack Turkey and threaten its security.[/size]
[size=45]A senior Iraqi official in Baghdad, who is close to Abdul Mahdi, spoke to al-Arabi al-Jadeed about what he called "fears that the success of the Turkish operation in northern Syria will open the appetite of the Turks to carry out a large ground offensive inside Iraqi territory, with a depth of more than 40 kilometers in Kandil, Sinjar and other border towns where there are thousands of PKK militants. ” He explained that "any Turkish attack inside Iraq will not have results similar to what has been achieved in Syria at all." He pointed out that the reason Baghdad did not move towards the PKK militants during the last period was because of the presence of a more dangerous enemy to eliminate it, the organization "IS", and by "Al Qaeda", as well as everyone is aware that Ankara can solve the problem with the "workers" The Kurdistani "to negotiate, according to his words, but that" the Turks are well aware that the terrain in which the militants holed up workers is very difficult, and threaten any ground force to enter. "[/size]
[size=45]At the end of May, Turkish forces launched a large-scale air offensive, with a limited ground incursion into the mountainous areas of northern Iraq, specifically the PKK caches, dubbed the "claw". Turkish military operations continued in border areas inside Iraqi territory within the Kurdistan region, until last July, specifically after the killing of the Turkish consul in Erbil, without issuing any official position from Baghdad, which he interpreted as approval of the operations. At that time, Sedkan, Suran, Khwakurk, Bankard, and the Qandil mountain range, as well as the outskirts of Amadiyah and Zakho districts, witnessed aerial operations, as well as occasional artillery shelling by the Turkish army, causing casualties among Iraqi Kurdish civilians.[/size]
[size=45]The Kurdistan region of northern Iraq has long been home to armed groups opposed to Turkey and Iran. Iran and Turkey have been in the region since the 1990s, after Iraq's three northern provinces were out of Baghdad's control after the 1991 Gulf War, and the UN Security Council imposed a no-fly zone.[/size]
[size=45]He added that "Iraq officially condemned the Turkish operation on Syria for reasons not hidden, internal concerns regarding the Iraqi Kurds and their status with the government of Abdul-Mahdi, as well as Iran and the effects of member states of the Arab League, but in fact, the process will contribute to Iraq's control of its border with Syria from the point of Hasakah Deir ez-Zor, and the grip of the PKK on Sinjar, which receives supplies from SDF militants in Hasakeh, is weakening and smuggling will be reduced. For the Iraqi government, the presence of Syrian regime forces is much better than that of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). ”[/size]
[size=45]For his part, Abbas Sarout, a member of the Security and Defense Committee in the Iraqi Council of Representatives, that "there are very expected fears of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan towards Iraq and abort the military presence of the PKK, which is also rejected by the Iraqi government, especially with the success The Turkish operation in Syria may encourage the Turks to liquidate their armed opponents inside Iraq. ” He stressed, in a statement to the "new Arab", that "Iraq does not accept that its sovereignty is compromised, but there may be coordination or a military agreement between Turkey and Iraq on the Labor Party, which is not easy to get rid of, especially as it penetrates in very rough areas Northern Iraq. ”[/size]
[size=45]In a recent statement, the Iraqi National Security Council confirmed that it had given instructions to units of the Iraqi army and the Popular Mobilization to secure the international border with Syria, while continuing the military operation carried out by Turkey in northern Syria. This came during a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to discuss the Turkish military operation and its possible repercussions on Iraq. For its part, the leader of the "Kurdistan Democratic Party" Ashwaq al-Jaf, that "any foreign military operation conducted within Iraqi territory is a breach of sovereignty, even if the foreign forces have many pretexts, will not silence Iraq, and any dispute with neighboring Turkey with any party inside Iraq Or outside it, it must resolve it within its borders and in the ways adopted by the international community and human rights. ” She added, in contact with the "new Arab": "Turkey has done so, it risks, because the destabilization of Iraq's security means destabilizing the security of the entire region."[/size]
[size=45]“It is possible for Turkish forces to change direction from Syria to Iraq at any moment, or there may be other operations towards Sinjar and the roads linking the Kurdistan region and the areas adjacent to it, especially those that control it,” said Sarmad al-Bayati, a security and military researcher in Iraq. The PKK, "pointing out, in an interview with the" new Arab ", that" the PKK in an unbalanced situation, and the Turks may take advantage of the opportunity, we soon see an operation in Iraq if their operation in Syria, or even did not succeed, it will likely Go to Iraq to look for a second compensatory victory. ” He believed that Iraq may agree to a deal with the Turks, which is not welcome in the "Kurdistan Workers", as well as the "Democratic Party" led by Massoud Barzani.[/size]
[size=45]Earlier, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamay Aksoy said that "Labor has been using the territory of its southeastern neighbor (Iraq) for many years as a base to launch operations against Turkey," adding that "thousands of our citizens were killed in these attacks, and the organization's activities are now Inside Iraq and Syria is a matter of national security for us. ” He stressed that "Ankara has repeatedly reminded Baghdad that it must assume its responsibilities to prevent the activities of terrorists, and that Article VII of the Iraqi Constitution obliges the government of the country to prevent the use of its territory as a base for attacks on neighboring countries."[/size]
