Iraq trying to control Shia militias, Kurds fear future clashes

The Kurds fear that in the future there will be clashes between the Peshmerga forces and Shia militias over the disputed territories in Iraq.

“Given the decentralized nature of the PMUs’ leadership and chain of command, as well as the diversity of their loyalty, which is not uniformly to the Iraqi state, some may see in the Kurdish Peshmerga a new enemy to justify their raison d’être,” Bilal Wahab, Soref fellow at the Washington Institute, told ARA News.
