Liberating Tal Afar 'hinges on US-Turkish consent': Lawmaker

Lawmaker Nahla al-Hababi said on Wednesday that liberating Tal Afar has been delayed for a long time, and it requires the consent of 'foreign parties'.

It is disgraceful to leave the residents of this area facing the woes of torture, arrests and massacres, she said.

She also added that the local residents in Tal Afar are living in extremely dreadful conditions.

The military officials should start a military action to rid the city of the terrorists of ISIS, the lawmaker went on to say.

Al-Hababi yet explained that the problem is Tal Afar is mainly a political one, adding that liberating it needs a US-Turkish consent.
