Political parties’ disagreements upset peshmerge forces
A commander of peshmerga forces states that the pehsmerga forces are not comfortable psychologically due to the current struggles among the political parties over presidency issues.
Sheikh Jaafar Mustafa, the commander of 70 Special Forces, said the disagreements among the political parties have created negative impact upon peshmerga forces in general.
"The peshmerga fighters are really upset with what is going on among the parties. They have sacrificed their lives in the fighting against Islamic State terrorists, but unfortunately the political parties are in struggle with each other," said Mustafa
Mustafa said Peshmerge are always ready to defend their people and nation, but they are anxious and upset about the disagreements among the parties.
Mustafa thinks those who have in the positions of decision making have to consider the financial conditions of pehsmerge. "We have fighters who have no money but are ready to fight and defend. It is time for those who make decisions to consider the con- ditions of peshmerge," noted Mustafa
Due to the financial crisis and cutting Kurdistan's budget share, the government employees especially peshmerge fighters are living in a tough situation. Most of them are living in renting houses and have no enough money to pay their bills.
