TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - "Iraqi armed force are advancing to retake their military positions that were taken over during the events of June 2014," the general told AFP by telephone, asking not to be identified.

In 2014, when ISIL swept through areas north and west of Baghdad, many units of the Iraqi army collapsed and Kurdish Peshmerga forces stepped in to take over.

Russian Sputnik  agency also reported that Iraqi Prime Minister Abadi ordered to halt the entry of security forces into Kirkuk for 48 hours after kurdish Peshmerga lowered their flags and emptied their barracks in Taza and Bashir villages.
