Sinjar residents call for removing armed presence from the district

Shafaq News / Dozens of Sinjar residents blocked the road leading to Hattin apartment complex, protesting the recent security perturbance that took place in the governorate.

Witnesses told Shafaq News agency that the protestors demanded clearing the apartment complex from all armed presence to prevent the reoccurrence of what happened a few days ago.

On October 9, Baghdad and Erbil reached an agreement to normalize the situation in Sinjar, according to which the district will be jointly administrated.

ISIS invaded Sinjar district in 2014 and committed a massacre against its residents, before the Peshmerga forces regained it the following year.

However, the Iraqi army backed by Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi forces invaded the region due to the tension between Erbil and Baghdad against the independence referendum held in 2017.

There are currently two local governments for Sinjar, one of which was appointed by the federal government authorities, and the second is the elected government, which is running its business from Duhok governorate.

The PKK reject repeated calls from the Kurdistan Region to leave its territory, which gets subjected to Turkish attacks that impede the return of tens of thousands of displaced Yazidis to their homes.
