SULAYMANIYAH — Gorran (Change Movement) is in the process of creating a militia outside the authority of the legitimate security forces of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
A source told BasNews that Gorran offices across Sulaymaniyah province and Garmiyan administration have recently begun enlisting people for an armed force.
The source claimed the party is supported by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
"Gorran will be receiving weaponry and military equipment from the Iranian government once they concluded the recruitment phase," the source said.
The head of Gorran's office in Chamchamal, Abdullah Kwekha Moubarak, recently posted on social media that his party will have its own armed forces.
Peshmerga Commander Sheikh Jafar Sheikh Mustafa recently warned that no armed groups outside the KRG's official forces will be allowed to operate inside the Kurdistan Region.
