( Nineveh – The progress of Peshmerga in Nineveh has raised the fears of the Iraqi government and urged Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to call the Peshmerga not to advance towards Mosul.

The government of Kurdistan Region rejected Abadi’s request and continued to advance in Nineveh, refusing to withdraw from the areas it liberated.

The Kurdish decision reinforced the fears that the Kurdistan region is attempting to monopolize more land, under the pretext of defeating ISIS, in order to expand and declare independence later.

The Kurdish refusal was followed by decisions made by the Supreme Commander of the Peshmerga forces Massoud Barzani regarding the work of his troops in their areas of influence, in order to determine how to deal with civilians in these areas and respect human rights principles.
