On Wednesday, Iraqi security forces retook the strategic Mosul Dam and its nearby facilities from the Peshmerga, a military force of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
According to Iraqi sources, at least 9 people in clashes between government troops and KRG forces.
Following the incident, a spokesman for the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) said that Ahmed Obeidi, assistant to the head of the PMU Intelligence known as Abu Yasir, was killed in the firefight in the area.
Ahmad al-Asadi said that Obeidi died preventing the attempt “to separate and partition” of Iraq.
Now, government forces are expanding their control in the contested areas in the Mosul countryside.
