Exclusive:Soleimani pressures KIG, Gorran movement to betray Kurdistan

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps' Quds Force's leader Qasem Soleimani is currently pressuring Gorran Movement and the Kurdistan Islamic Group (KIG) to have a neutral stance towards Kirkuk crisis, a source from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) told The Baghdad Post on Thursday.

On Wednesday the PUK expelled one of its prominent leaders Pavel Talabani the son of former deceased Iraqi president Jalal Talabani after striking an infamous deal with Soleimani to withdraw his Peshmerga forces from Kirkuk governorate.

Following the Peshmerga forces withdrawal from Kirkuk, the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) were deployed in the governorate and committed atrocities against the Kurdish and Sunni Arab civilians.
