PKK Leaves Several Headquarters in Sinjar: Mayor

ERBIL — Fighters of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) have vacated several headquarters in central Sinjar in the wake of a landmark agreement between Erbil and Baghdad to stabilize the Yezidi-populated region.

Sinjar Mayor Mahma Khalil told BasNews that Iraqi federal police units have recently been deployed to Sinjar where they notified the PKK fighters to leave the city.

However, according to Khalil, the PKK is required to leave all the headquarters and withdraw its entire army, which is expected to happen throughout a process.
