The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Af­ter su­per­vis­ing the lib­er­a­tion of Sin­jar and re­main­ing at the front lines for sev­eral days, Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani re­turned to Er­bil on Novem­ber 22. Af­ter a warm wel­come, it is clear that the po­lit­i­cal par­ties and peo­ple in the re­gion ap­pre­ci­ate pres­i­dent Barzani's role in su­per­vis­ing the lib­er­a­tion process.

Af­ter con­grat­u­lat­ing the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan on the Sin­jar lib­er­a­tion, Mo­hammed Barzani, a Kur­dis­tan Is­lamic Union of­fi­cial said, "Pres­i­dent Barzani kept his prom­ise as Sin­jar was lib­er­ated. Barzani played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the front line by di­rectly su­per­vis­ing the lib­er­a­tion process. Peo­ple of Duhok should be thanked for re­ceiv­ing Barzani in the best way."

Sheikh Shamo, Yazidi rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the Kur­dis­tan par­lia­ment, said Barzani is the sym­bol of Kurds' hap­pi­ness and he played a cru­cial role in re­tak­ing Sin­jar from Is­lamic State ter­ror­ists.

"We were wait­ing for this day since 15 months ago. We were sure that other than Pesh­merga forces, no forces can lib­er­ate Sin­jar. Thanks to God the process is done suc­cess­fully and the day will be recorded as a his­tor­i­cal day," said Shamo.

Head of Chaldean List at the Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment, Wa­heed Yaqu Hormiz, ex- pressed his hap­pi­ness over the lib­er­a­tion of Sin­jar and said, "We need to be proud to have a strong pres­i­dent like Ma­soud Barzani. In this cur­rent sit­u­a­tion Barzani is needed for all Kur­dish peo­ple."

Kur­dis­tan So­cial­ist Demo­cratic Party's lead­er­ship mem­ber, Mus­lih Rajab, at­trib­uted re­ceiv­ing pres­i­dent Barzani warmly in Duhok to his prom­ise to peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan and Sin­jar peo­ple es­pe­cially. He said Barzani promised to lib­er­ate Sin­jar and he kept the prom­ise.

Sadraddin Chato, a Duhok cit­i­zen, said, "We all came out and poured to the streets to re­ceive and wel­come back our pres­i­dent. We all need to thank the pres­i­dent and all the Pesh­merga forces for re­tak­ing Sin­jar from ISIS."

Kur­dish forces lib­er­ated the town of Sin­jar from ISIS af­ter it was con­trolled by the ter­ror­ists for nearly 15 months; Pres­i­dent Barzani di­rectly su­per­vised the lib­er­a­tion process.
