Dr. Ali Akram to TRT: The Kurds changed the demography of Kirkuk by bringing 600 thousands Kurds and inhabiting them in Kirkuk. TNAnews-Baghdad| TRT world TV had an interview with Dr. Ali Akram president of TRF yesterday to discuss about Kurdish flag raise in Kirkuk.

The names of the oldest neighborhoods and cities of Kirkuk are mainly at Turkmen side including ( Musalla, Qouria, Tes’in, Taza khurmatoo, Altoon Kobri and Tawooq), while the Kurdish areas are all modern areas most of which have been created or been expanded after 2003. □IRAQI #TURKMENS PROTEST DECISION TO RAISE KURDISTAN FLAG IN #KIRKUK.

The Peshmerga base in Bashiqa overlooks what were, until recently, positions held by the Islamic State group. Black smoke filled the distant sky last week, as IS militants set fires in an effort to confuse US-led coalition jets striking their positions. The fires didn't work, and the Peshmerga, in support of the Iraqi army-led offensive to take Mosul from IS, cleared Bashiqa of IS militants on Thursday.

But the Peshmerga isn't alone in Bashiqa. "The Turkish army is here too. They're training the Sunni al-hashd, and they have some good units," General Bahram Yasin told The New Arab, referring to the pro-government al-hashd al-watani militia.

Iraqi Turkmen: the minority group you probably never heard of. Kirkuk, Iraq is home to much of the country's Turkmen population (Al Bawaba/Adam Lucente) Like much of the Middle East, Iraq was once part of the Ottoman Empire. At the time, thousands of ethnic Turks settled in what is now the Republic of Iraq. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed, most stayed and number between 1 to 3 million today, and are known as Iraqi Turkmen. But their history in Iraq has not always been smooth. “Our problems are not new. We’ve been suffering since 1921 as successive Iraqi governments had national ideas and did not give certain rights to minorities,” said Ali Akram to Al Bawaba. Akram is president of the Turkmen Rescue Foundation. Akram and others believe such an organization is necessary to protect Iraqi Turkmen, who live mostly in ethnically diverse areas of the country’s north. “After 2003, the issue of disputed provinces in Mosul, Kirkuk, and Tuz Khormato arose.

Beyond the clashes, Akram noted several massacres of Turkmen to Al Bawaba. Adam Lucente. Iraq multietnico: i Turkmeni e gli altri dopo la cacciata dell’Isis da Mosul. Mcc43 I Curdi iracheni combattendo l’Isis hanno ottenuto aree che prima erano sotto il governo iracheno, ampliando il semiautonomo Kurdistan quasi del 50 per cento. I Curdi del YPG, Unità di protezione popolare, sono arrivati dalla Siria ad occupare i territori limitrofi, ma non si tratta di alleanza: sono forze che portano avanti una faida intra-curda. L’etichetta Hashd al-Shaabi riunisce forze del fronte sciita, sia quelle guidate dall’Iran che i gruppi di volontari locali, che si sono spinte fino all’estremo nord, in aree totalmente abitate da Sunniti. Se la città di Mosul è a stragrande maggioranza arabo-sunnita, la zona circostante vede una popolazione di varie etnie e diverse osservanze religiose.

Kurds Clash With Iran-Backed Militia in Northeast Iraq. Kurdish tanks / Courtesy of Turkmen Rescue Foundation BY: Douglas Burton A fierce battle between Kurdish forces and Turkmen Shia fighters in the northern Iraqi city of Tuz-Khurmatu threatens to subvert the pro-forma alliance of an Iran-backed Shia militia and Kurds against ISIS troops just a few kilometers away.

The mountainous region near Iraq’s northeastern border with Iran has been a bone of contention between Kurds, Turkmen Shia fighters, and ISIS since jihadi troops briefly occupied it and were pushed out two years ago. The regional army of Kurdistan, the Peshmerga, began firing into Tuz-Khurmatu’s sports hall on Saturday, April 23. When the Turkmen Hashd al Shaabi Unit returned fire, the Peshmerga brought in a column of five tanks and began firing on Turkmen armored vehicles, as well as schools and residences occupied by Turkmen residents, according to Dr. Ali Al Bayati. “Tehran is acting in its own interest. Turkmen Town Under Attack. UNPO| While the Kurdish Peshmerga’s launch of an offensive to take Sinjar from ISIS is hitting the news, local sources report that on Thursday [12 November 2015], the Peshmerga attacked a group of Turkmen security forces near the Turkmen town of Tuzkhurmatu, approximately 180km north of Baghdad.

According to local sources, the Peshmerga forces attacked a group of patrolling ‘People’s Mobilization Forces’ (al-Hashd al-Shaabi). During the skirmish, at least five Turkmen militants were killed and many were heavily injured. The injured Turkmens were later brought to a local hospital in Tuzkhurmatu, but tensions between the two groups allegedly continued around the hospital, while the clinic itself was under armed attack. Tuzkhurmatu is a Turkmen town on which both Iraqi and Kurdish authorities have conflicting claims.

Since the town was taken back from ISIS in 2014, security has been provided by both Peshmerga and Shia militia forces. The Plight of Iraqi Turkmen Book 1 CM SON 12 ocak. Iraq: “It’s not Sunnis fighting against Shias, it’s terrorists fighting against the government” Mohammed Mahdi Ameen al-Bayati, of the Turkmen Community in Iraq, was the Iraqi Minister for Human Rights from the 9th of September, 2014 until the 16th of August, 2015. In an Interview with Eurasia News, he spoke about the situation of the Turkmens, and their future prospects in the country. Mister al-Bayati, do you think that the State of Iraq and Syria will even exist in ten years from now? There are many conspiracy-theories about the State of Iraq; most of them originate from the Gulf-States and other regional actors.

This is happening since 2003, they try to return the state of Iraq into its condition before the war, a state which is led by minorities against the majority of the country, or even to change the entire composition within the state itself. Just like the old regime has targeted Shias, Kurds and Turkmens, destroyed their villages and executed their sons. What is happening in Iraq is not a civil-war.
