Iraqi Army, Peshmerga commanders meet in Nineveh operations command HQ

Iraqi Army and Peshmerga forces commanders began a meeting at Nineveh's operations command headquarters, a well informed source said on Saturday.

The source said that the meeting includes Iraqi Army's Chief of Staff Othman al-Ghanmi, Counter-Terrorism Services Commander Abdul Ghani al-Asadi, Federal Police Commander Raed Shakir Jawdat, Nineveh Operations Commander Nijm al-Jabouri and the Military Intelligence Commander.

He added that the meeting also included many Peshmerga commanders, most prominent of them are Peshmerga Ministry General Secretary Jabbar Yawer, Kurdistan's Interior Minister Karim Sinjari, Makhmur Operations Commander Sirwan Barzani and Peshmerga top leader Jamal Eminki.

This comes as the Iraqi government announced a 24 hours truce, that will include sending a joit team that will ensure the mobilization of federal forces in all disputed areas to put a stop to all clashes between the Iraqi forces and Peshmerga.

This comes as tensions are high between Baghdad-Erbil in the wake of the Kurdistan independence referendum and the incursion of the Iraqi forces and IMIS that followed afterwards against Kirkuk that led to the displacement of tens of thousands of Kurds and Sunni Muslims from the governorate.
