Iraqi military takes control of Syrian border-crossing after terrorist PKK withdrawal


The Iraqi Armed Forces have taken full control of a Syrian border-crossing in the Nineveh Governorate, Al-Sumaria TV reported this morning.

According to the report, the Iraqi Armed Forces asserted full control over the Khansour border-crossing after the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) withdrew from this part of the Nineveh Governorate.

The report added that Yezidi members of Hashd Al-Sha’abi (var. Popular Mobilization Units) and Iraqi Army personnel are now deployed to this border-crossing with Syria.

Earlier this week, the PKK made the decision to completely withdraw from the western part of Sinjar, following threats from Turkey to invade this region.
