The Head of the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party (KDP) head­quar­ters in Mo­sul, Es­mat Ra­jab, said that the ar­eas that have re­cently been con­trolled by Pesh­marga forces are safe and people de­mand the Kur­dish forces to stay in their ar­eas.

“I want to as­sure all our people that Pesh­marga will not al­low ISIS to en­ter the ar­eas that are un­der the con­trol of the Kur­dish au­thor­i­ties,” said Ra­jab

The Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Govern­ment (KRG) has al­ready opened sev­eral camps for the refugees and plans to open sev­eral oth­ers.

Due to the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tions, ac­cord­ing to Ra­jab, over 30,000 Kur­dish fam­i­lies es­pe­cially from Shabaks have left their homes in Mo­sul and have based in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion since 2003.

Ra­jab con­firmed that all the dis­puted ar­eas that have been con­trolled by the Kur­dish forces are safe and people can feel safe and com­fort­able in those ar­eas.
