Iraqi spokesman blasts Kur­dish leader’s ac­tions

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WORLD -

The spokesman of Iraq’s state­sanc­tioned mili­tias on Thurs­day de­scribed the Kur­dish leader be­hind last month’s vote for in­de­pen­dence as “worse” than the Is­lamic State group, but said the mili­tias have no im­me­di­ate plans to take mil­i­tary ac­tion.

Karim al-nouri, spokesman for the Pop­u­lar Mo­bi­liza­tion Forces, ac­cused the Kur­dish re­gional pres­i­dent, Ma­soud Barzani, of be­hav­ing like the leader of a fifth col­umn dur­ing the war against IS.

Barzani “is more dan­ger­ous than Daesh be­cause he comes from within Iraq,” said al-nouri, us­ing the Ara­bic term for IS.
