ERBIL — The Interior Ministry of Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) on Thursday revealed a new plan by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) to “destabilize” the Kurdistan Region.
“As part of their plans against the [Kurdistan] Region, and with the help of some internal actors, [PKK] has sent several European passport holders to the Kurdistan Region so to be used for destabilizing the region under the guise of a group called ‘Peace and Freedom’,” reads the statement.
The KRG’s Interior Ministry also shed light on the recent deadly attacks by the PKK against the Peshmerga forces, reminding that the group’s hostility towards Kurdistan costed six lives in the recent days only.
“Hereby we make it clear that the stability of Kurdistan Region in general, and capital Erbil in particular, is the red line, and we will not allow any groups under any titles or excuses to harm it,” the statement continued.
The ministry called on “the so-called Peace and Freedom Group” to speak to Qandil if they genuinely are concerned about the real peace and freedom in Kurdistan Region.
Qandil is the mountain range where the PKK is using as its stronghold for over two decades.
