On Tuesday, the governor of northern Iraq’s Dohuk Province renewed his call for the end of the attendance of the PKK terror group in Dohuk. “The PKK militants are not from Dohuk, they are strangers and their presence in the province must be ended,” governor Ali Tatar told in a press conference in the province.
He said PKK terrorists have levied their control over some areas in the province’s Amedi district. “PKK militants are the cause of failing to complete projects due to the ongoing fighting between them and Turkey,” he held.
Last November, Tatar had called for the end of the PKK authority in the province after a car bomb attack was made on Peshmerga forces, in which three soldiers were killed. In its more than 35-year terror operation against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
