Heavy Clashes Between Peshmerga And Popular Mobilization Units Break Out South Of Kirkuk City (Videos)

Donate

On October 14, heave clashes between Kurdish Peshmerga forces and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) broke out inside the Turkmen Shiite Tuz Khurmatu town 50km south of Kirkuk city, according to Iraqi sources.

Initial reports claimed that Peshmerga units opened fire on the Dah Dah Hussainiya hall in al-Askari neighborhood of Tuz Khurmatu town. A Hussainiya is a hall used for Shiite commemoration ceremonies, and its considered by Shiites a holy place just like Mosques.

Iraqi sources reported that local PMU fighters in Tuz Khurmatu town destroyed a vehicle of the Peshmerga during the clashes. In turn, Peshmerga shelled PMU positions inside the town with mortars.

Meanwhile, an official of the PMU confirmed to the Iraqi media that heavy clashes are ongoing around the Turuz hospital in the center of Tuz Khurmatu town. However, the official said that the clashes are with “unknown” gunmen.

The situation in Tuz Khurmatu town is still not clear, especially that no officials of the Kurdistan Region Government (KRG) or the Iraqi Federal Government have commented on the ongoing clashes yet.

    Hardly believable, especially that it was KRG starting.

    Peshmerga in one mobilization could run through Iraqis defense. They have tactical mobility and the most professional military men in the region. They are also Highly disciplined.

    The US won’t fight Iraq’s war this time and have already bailed them out twice and fought the fight for them. The Kurds could easily conquer baghdad

  • Mountains

    The funny thing with the Kurds that I noticed is that they are like the ”iceberg in titanic” it’s elusive and tricky then you can see and the reason why I’m saying this is because there numbers are elusive and not real.

    Example I don’t know if anyone of you recall what happened in Kobane. ISIS went in there but ended up fighting Kurds back-up hordes from Turkey which overwhelmed ISIS.

    The Iraqi army will open 3 roads of in flow towards themselves. Because they are located in the middle of the Kurdish heartland and have borders on all 3 sides.

    The Iraqi gov’t can’t fight a war with the Kurds at this year or time without foreign backing which I doubt will come. They have to let Turkey or Iran fight for them because they can’t defeat nor take on millions of kurds right on their borders. Military success by Iraq is impossible in this war and Barzani knows this

  • LR captain

    guys this site claims that the KURDS have retreated and left 28 SQUARE MILES to the pro-Iraq units.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Peshmerga Kurds had withdrawn from some areas and they have been fighting in Tuz , they have a double hatred for Shia and Turkmen. Possibly why they thought of stirring things up with them, would make sense as this would make a perfect opportunity.

  • Serious Dude

    But … the PMU was created to fight ISIS!

    • Solomon Krupacek

      PMU is sword of Iran.

      • Serious Dude

        Of course!

      • Brother Ma

        Well how stupid is uszioyankistan for invading iraq,getting rid of saddam and pushing iraq shia to iran’s arms? Only retards could not see this coming!

      • Robert Duran

        Does it matter? If a force kept ISIS at bay when the army was running away in fear I wouldnt care much who is behind it..

  • Solomon Krupacek

    Kurds must go on mars.

  • Free man

    Iran controls these PMU but the Iraqi government will be responsible for this civil war. There is no way that the PMU will defeat the Kurds. Such a war would actually result in the split of Iraq into three states and the weakening of Assad. Because the Sunnis in Iraq will not sit still. And the Sunnis in Syria will take advantage of a Shiite-Kurdish war.
    Iran is making a big mistake. Too bad.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      in this case this is not sure. also sunnis does not like kurds. sunnies without kurdish and shia oli fields are sandeaters…

      • Free man

        My argument is that the Sunnis hate the Shi’ites and Assad more than they don’t like the Kurds. So the Sunnis will take advantage of this unnecessary war. In my opinion, such a war will also cause unrest among the Iranian Kurds.
        Iran is causing a civil war that will harm Iraq. ISIS were a foreign element with an alienated ideology, so it was easy for everyone to unite and fight them. The Kurds are a local fighting people. There is no way in the world that the Shiite militias will defeat the Kurds.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          this is in iraq.
          syria is another chapter.

          • Free man

            Time will tell.

          • Harry Smith

            Are Turks Sunni or Shia? Don’t you think your theory must be reviewed?

          • Free man

            I didn’t mention the Turks here.

          • Harry Smith

            But Turks are pice of equation and are Sunni. Even more, Turks have imense influance over the Sunni in the region.

          • Free man

            You’re right about Turkey.
            But if the PMU attacked the Kurds it would be perceived as a Shi’ite-Kurdish struggle.
            I do not see how it can end well for Iraq.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Peshmerga attacked since they opened up with a 23mm gun learn the facts as only pro Kurdish sites make those claims.

          • Harry Smith

            At my point, there is a very hard situation for Kurds. Iran and Turkey are against their independency. Iraq too. There are no avenues to massive resupply peshmerga in case of the war. I do not know who’s idea was to proclaim the independence, but that man for sure works against the USA. Nations make alliances much faster if they have the common enemy. Somebody gifted to the Turks, Persians and Arabs that enemy.

          • Free man

            It is hard to say whether the Kurds made a mistake or not. We do not know what their leaders know.
            On the other hand, they knew that Iran, Syria, Iraq, Turkey and the United States would oppose a Kurdish state in northern Iraq.
            Time will tell who was wrong and who was right.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            They are majority Sunni about 65% and 35% other religions.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            yes. but until now i always saw large differences between these two countries.

          • Free man

            To me too Syria and Iraq are different. But they are made up, mostly, of the same peoples / religions. And I heard Sunni Iraqis talking about independence since the Kurdish referendum. I also heard Sunni rebels in Syria saying that a Kurdish-Shiite war is a golden opportunity for them since it would slip into Syria.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            No doubt, there are also such sunni groups. Problem is, they think, can have shia territories. but this is their mistake. if iraq will be split, the shia territories with oil fields come to iran. like crimea to russia. and sunnis will have some hills in deserts, without shore. i think, yanks and israelis did not think over deeply the whole problem with splitting of countries.

          • Free man

            I agree with most of what you wrote. Only I think that the Americans did not think about the effect of their actions because they do not really understand the Middle East (I do not think it is in America’s interest that Iraq or Syria split ). And there is an overestimation of Israel’s influence.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            you are right

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Stop making a fallacious comment you are being a fake right now, there have been nothing like your claims just pure fantasy.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Everything has been conflicting in regards to the actions by Turkey. The events unfolded in Iraq as I surmised, mostly the volunteer forces bore the brunt of the advance.While the other militias and KRG militia and PKK left in the ISOF, Ezidi and Turkmen PMF advanced with them. The Talabani left after the Barzani pulled out, Masoud used this as a way to grab power for 2 more years.

        • Serious Dude

          ISIS is 100% Iraqi. ISIS is the radicalized remnant of Sunni Ba’athist Iraq.

          • Free man

            ISIS are originally al-Qaeda to which remnants of Saddam’s army have joined.
            They came as an occupying force from western Iraq / Syria.

          • Serious Dude

            Yeah but it is 100% Iraqi while Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham is Qatari. Ahrar al-Sham is Turkish and Hezbollah is Iranian. Taliban is Pakistani and Al-Qaeda is Saudi.

          • John Whitehot

            isis is 50% saudi and 50% israeli

            ISIS is neither Saudi or Israeli. ISIS is Sunni Iraqi. Al-Qaeda is Saudi.

          • Serious Dude

            Yes.

        • andy l

          Your argument is erroneous. The militant sunnis certainly despise Assad & the Shia, but before the war Syria was secular. The population saw themselves as Syrians first. The SAA are majority Sunni fighting for Assad. If they despised the president then they would have revolted & all joined the rebels (some did this of course) . Clearly they are loyal to the motherland first. Simply categorizing people along religous & ethnic divide does not mean they all have the same goals. There are plenty of Sunnis who support Assad

          • Free man

            I tried to simplify things.
            But you are right that most of Assad’s army is made up of Sunnis and many Sunnis in Syria and elsewhere support Assad.
            On the other hand, I heard Sunni Iraqis talking about independence since the Kurdish referendum. And I also heard Sunni rebels in Syria saying that a Kurdish-Shiite war is a golden opportunity for them since it would slip into Syria.

AND SECOUND SUNNI WILL DEFENETLY JOINED THIS FIGHT TO MAKE SURE BARZANI KURDS WILL PAY HEAVILY OF MISTREATING SUNNI IN KIRKUK AND OTHER ARES WHERE THE FORCED REMOVED SUNNI FROM THIER HOMES IN NORTHEN IRAQ.

        So, in your opinion, is it forbidden to criticize Iran? And a Kurdish-Shiite war in Iraq is a good thing?
        How do you manage to bring Israel / Jews into any argument? (A rhetorical question. I know the answer to this one).

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Problem is your on the US MSM syrup and should never add any of that to your food. Iran has no control over them as you would think they are attached to the PM office and part of the army. Peshmerga forces were firing a 23mm gun on the site not a good idea, Shi’ite Kurds will fight the Peshmerga again along with other Kurds so it will be more like Iraqi’s fighting Kurd separatists.

        • John Whitehot

          “How do you manage to bring Israel / Jews into any argument? (A rhetorical question. I know the answer to this one”

          Because Israel / Jews is the only country that wants the destruction of Iran together with Saudia.

          “So, in your opinion, is it forbidden to criticize Iran?”

          Let me see. Are those who criticize Iran automatically labeled “antisemites”? and tbh, I don’t forbid nothing, it’s just that people singing the israeli tunes will get my critics. Or is that forbidden?

      The Peshmerga fired on locals wonder who is going to be responsible in truth, the Iraqi govt controls these PMU not Iran as all they did was supply them with arms. Many forget the US refused to arm any militia units from the Shia’s ,Christians, Yezidis and Turkmen basically any minority group , they were hoping they would be killed and create more racial tension. Sunni Tribesmen also had the same issue with the US seems there won’t be this religious war as anticipated.

      • bcbingram

        Sir I respect your intelligence on these middle eastern situations but I believe you are blind to the elephant in the room= Religious battles /wars have been a constant feature of Islamic belief since day 2.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          They’re have been issues with this also in Christian religions and many others. There are no individual religions without these issues.There are always these issues with the minority few in them. There are deeper hatreds and old wounds for Kurds and Turkmen, since the Kurds first came to there Arab Turkmen region of Kirkuk.

    • Rafik Chauhan

      FOR YOUR KIND INFORMATION KURDSA RE MISTREATING MORE TO SUNNI THEN SHIA . AND IF BARZANI KURDS FORCE TIS WAR THEN DEFENETLY SUNNI WILL SUPPORT THIS PMU TO FIGHT KURDS AND REMOVE THEM FROM THAT LAND EHICH IS OCCUPIED BY BARZANI KURDS.

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      The PMU is made up of Christians and Sunni as well as Shia. It is Iraqis first Unity Movement and it is forming beautifully for a single united Iraq!
      Obviously you failed to even watch the last video that goes over all of the formations of militias with the PMU.

    • BL

      Wrong again dumb Jew, PMU is supported by both Sunni and Shias. Both Sunnis and Shias are strongly opposed to Kurdish secessionism and would gladly unite to put an end to their treason.

  • Vitex

    The PMU used to be an uncoordinated rabble, but years of constant fighting have honed their skills (as have the IRGC and probably the Russians too). They’re also getting better and better equipped, with some interesting home-grown gear (putting a 23mm on top of a M113 is a good combination – probably better than a Stryker). The Kurds were once in a position to negotiate with the Syrian and Iraqi governments, but I think they may have left it too late now. Perhaps they’ve been played by the USA. They’re not militarily strong (no tanks) and they know they’ve strayed out of their own territory. I expect greed will be the Kurds’ downfall.
