Four Kurdish Killed in Kirkuk Clashes
Before the four Kurdish killed in Kirkuk clashes a group of local Arab people shut down the Kirkuk to Erbil motorway last week in protest of the KDP headquarters reopening. Tensions with the security forces rose on Saturday as Kurdish demonstrators sought the reopening of the highway and that is why four Kurdish killed in Kirkuk clashes. The restoration of the KDP to the province was a clause included in the deal to construct the current government led by Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani which caused opposition from several Kirkuk groups and resulted to four Kurdish killed in Kirkuk clashes.
After the fighting on Saturday that resulted to four Kurdish killed in Kirkuk clashes the prime minister issued an order delaying reopening of the KDP headquarters and things seemed to have settled down. The transfer of the police headquarters to the KDP was suspended as a result of the subsequent Iraqi Federal Supreme Court decision until a related four Kurdish killed in Kirkuk clashes is settled. Sudani underlined his directives to the authorities to look into the circumstances surrounding the deaths and to hold all those liable for the four Kurdish killed in Kirkuk clashes and injuries accordance with law during cabinet meeting on Sunday.
