TUZ KHURMATU — In order to put an end to the conflicts in Tuz Khurmatu, the local administration has decided to evict Kurdish Peshmerga forces and Shi’ite militia Hashd al-Shaabi from the town.

Mohammed Fayiq, a Kurdish official from Tuz Khurmatu, told media that Head of the Parliamentary Committee for Defence and Security Affairs in the Iraqi Parliament, Hakim Zamli, has recently visited the city and discussed the recent unrests with the local officials.

BasNews has learned that the officials decided to remove the Peshmerga and Shi’ite militias from the area, and let the local police and security forces to take control of the city.
