Thousands of Kurdish troops sent to the oil region of Kirkuk to confront ‘threats’ from Iraq

“Kurdish authorities have sent thousands more troops to the oil region of Kirkuk to confront “threats” from Iraq’s central government, the vice president of the autonomous Kurdistan region said on Friday” writes unknown author for cnbc.com. “Tens of thousands of Kurdish Peshmerga and security forces are already stationed in and around Kirkuk,” Rasul said on Kurdish TV channel Rudaw. Kurdish Peshmerga moved into Kirkuk when the army collapsed in the face of Islamic State in 2014, preventing the region’s oil fields from falling in the hands of the militants.
