DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:40 A.M.) – Since October 16, the Iraqi Army and Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) have inflicted heavy casualties upon the Kurdish Peshmerga in a broad front offensive which saw government forces overrun Tuz Khurmatu, Pirde, Makhmur, Dubiz, and Kirkuk.

Although the Peshmerga quickly withdrew from the aforementioned towns, a total of 60 Kurdish troops were killed and 150 wounded in clashes with the Iraqi Armed Forces across the spectrum, Jabar Yawar, secretary general of the Peshmerga Ministry, said in a press conference on Sunday.

He added that Iraqi and Kurdish officials had held talks three times in the wake of the offensive, and that the Peshmerga had offered to withdraw to the pre-2014 frontline although no deal had been signed yet.

Skirmishes between the warring parties, both of whom have been heavily supplied with equipment by the US, have since calmed down as negotiations for a ceasefire are underway.

The US has so much blood on it’s hands it is untrue.

They have no respect for human life and have generated a whole new generation of Arab and Persian killers.

It is very sad to see – and it just makes the already fragile World more volatile.
