Israel funds the PKK terror group’s activities and trains terrorists in Iraq’s Kirkuk

The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) is rapidly increasing its presence in Iraq’s ancient city of Kirkuk with the support of Israel.

It was revealed that the terror organization has dozens of “liaison offices” in the region of Kirkuk, with six of them located in the city center.

These PKK “offices” are being funded by Israeli companies that carry out their activities under the name of “al-Aman,” say local sources.

The terror group in its turn ensures the “security” of these companies and provides them with a constant flow of intelligence. As the PKK searches for alternative locations to amass other than the Qandil Mountains in northern Iraq, it established so-called military bases in the south of Kirkuk, after Sinjar and Makhmur.

Israeli officers train PKK terrorists

At the terror camps around Kirkuk, Israeli officers train PKK terrorists on bombs, weapons and sabotage. Israel provides technical support for the terror group, which has formed its new attack strategy on unmanned aerial vehicles.

Speaking exclusively to Yeni Şafak daily, Iraqi Turkmen Front (ITF) officer Mehmet Seman evaluated the situation, saying, “Thanks to Israel, the PKK terror group runs amok in the region. The Zionists crook locals by posing as ‘Iraqi businessmen’ and buy the most fertile lands. Illegal works are being conducted on ancient artifacts and castles. After ‘feasibility’ and reconnaissance activities, hundreds of ancient artifacts were transferred to Israel with the help of PKK terrorists.”

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States. The PKK has been conducting armed violence in the southeastern part of Turkey since 1984. More than 40,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in the three-decade long conflict.

Drawing attention to the fact that churches were consecutively being opened in the region, Seman said: “Muslims are rapidly being Christianized. Locals obtain asylum papers for Europe by converting to Christianity. The papers of whoever becomes Christian are swiftly prepared. Then, these individuals are sent to Europe.”
