KDP Con­grat­u­lates Pres­i­dent Barzani for Sin­jar vic­tory

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party, KDP, led by Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani is­sued a state­ment fol­low­ing Sin­jar lib­er­a­tion op­er­a­tion, con­grat­u­lat­ing Barzani for su­per­vis­ing the Pesh­merga forces and the his­toric suc­cess in de­feat­ing ISIS.

The Pesh­merga fight­ers drove back the ISIS ter­ror­ists in the pre­dom­i­nantly Yazidi city of Sin­jar in only two days, prov­ing once again to the world that they are the most re­li­able ground force in the re­gion fight­ing against terror.

“The Pesh­merga forces have been pro­tect­ing Kur­dis­tan and hu­man­ity as well as the high val­ues from sav­agery and ne­o­fas­cism,” the state­ment said.

On Fri­day, the Kur­dish forces, backed by the US-led fighter jets, started an in­ten­sive of­fen­sive against the ISIS ter­ror­ists in the city, killing hun­dreds of them.

The suc­cess was not only mil­i­tar­ily, the KDP said, but it was also im­por­tant in heal­ing the wounds of the geno­cide against the Yazidi peo­ple caused by the in­hu­mane acts of en­slav­ing, ab­duct­ing and rap­ing the Kur­dish girls.

As ISIS at­tacked the city of Sin­jar last Au­gust, thou­sands of Yazidis fled from the ter­ror­ists, leav­ing hun­dreds trapped on Sin­jar Moun­tain where many died.

The KDP of Barzani has been the most pow­er­ful po­lit­i­cal party in the city of Sin­jar and there are thou­sands of Yazidi men and women who are loyal to the party. The KDP was strongly crit­i­cized when the city fell to ISIS and its fight­ers could not pro­tect the cit­i­zens.

The KDP de­scribed the ISIS at­tacks of last year as “un­ex­pected and with ex­treme force”.

Fad­hil Mi­rani, Se­cre- tary of KDP Polit­buro, con­grat­u­lated Pres­i­dent Barzani and the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan for the great vic­tory. He said that the Kurds would never forget the day when the Kur­dish flag was raised over the city.

Mi­rani added that re­tak­ing the city has re­newed trust and con­fi­dence in the hearts of all Kurds, stress­ing that it is part of the holy land of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion. He thanked Pres­i­dent Barzani for keep­ing his prom­ises to lib­er­ate Sin­jar and open­ing a new door for Pesh­merga.
