Members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) are discussing the withdrawal of their fighters from the Kurdistan Region, accusing local media of ignoring the PKK’s role in defending cities in the region.


Iraqi Kurdish media previously suggested the PKK wants to create an administrative region in Sinjar, separate from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG)’s authority. The PKK fiercely denies this, accusing media connected to the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) of fabricating news.

Murat Karayilan, the leader of the military wing of the PKK in a statement said that PKK fighters have played a major role in Sinjar, Makhmur, and Kirkuk, but pointed out that the Iraqi Kurdish media and KRG are presenting the PKK fighters as occupying forces.

“We consider these approaches as an insult. They want to present the PKK as an illegitimate force,” he said.


In a separate statement, the PKK leadership council KCK confirmed they are discussing withdrawing from certain fronts in the Kurdistan Region, after the PKK role in preventing a greater genocide of Yezidis, and defending Kirkuk and Erbil alongside Peshmerga forces has been ignored.

“The propaganda spread here labels the PKK as terrorist and guerrilla occupying forces, while also hinting that the PKK is against the KRG and wants the Kurdistan Region to be divided,” the PKK said about local media reports on Sinjar.

“In the face of the mentioned negative developments, we are continuing our discussions on whether or not to withdraw our forces that are engaged in the war against the IS,” the PKK said.

So far, there has been no response by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) or Iraqi Kurdish parties.

Since Islamic State attacked the Kurdistan Region, PKK fighters have been active in battles in Makhmour, Kirkuk, Jawlala, Sinjar.
