MESOP NEWS : PKK TROUBLE MAKERS CAUSE INSTABILITY IN KURDISTAN – PKK Moves Fighters from Qandil to Sinjar: Official
Basnews English – 24/03/2017 – SINJAR — Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) has started mobilizing its armed forces from Qandil mountainous areas to the Yezidi town of Sinjar, and from there to the neighboring Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava), an official said.
“The PKK continues causing troubles in Sinjar as it has turned [the Yezidi town] into a military base,” said Wais Naif, head of Sinjar mayoral council. Criticizing the increasing number of PKK guerrillas and constant military mobilizations in the area, Naif said fresh fighters are heading from Qandil to Sinjar and Rojava. Following a military clash between the Roj Peshmerga and PKK forces earlier this month near Sinjar, Yezidi officials have been blaming PKK for sending more fighters in to further enflame the tensions. www.mesop.de
