Iraqi and Kurdish forces clash in oil-rich Kirkuk

(Worthy News) – Clashes have broken out between Iraqi and Kurdish forces south of the city of Kirkuk.

Iraqi state media said that federal troops had entered disputed territories occupied by the Kurds, saying they had taken control of “vast areas” without opposition from the Kurdish peshmerga.

Kurdish officials, however, denied that the Iraqi forces had been able to get close to Kirkuk city and said that the oil fields west of the city were still under Kurdish control. [ Source: Sky News (Read More…) ]
