(Hatha al-Youm | Iraq News)- On Tuesday, the terrorists  “targeted the agricultural lands that were left unharmed in the previous attack three days ago,” Commander Barzani added.

The only solution, he suggested, is a wide-range operation to clean the mountain region from any Islamic State hideouts.

“We have sent an official request to Baghdad to authorize the Peshmerga forces to launch a military operation.”   

Tuesday’s attack comes after a delegation of farmers from Makhmour visited the autonomous Kurdistan Region’s parliament on Sunday to present their concerns to the top Kurdish legislative body, calling for increased security in the disputed district.

Makhmour is a disputed territory located on the outskirts of the Kurdistan Region’s capital, some 60 kilometers southwest of Erbil. Following the liberation of Mosul, Islamic State militants gathered in surrounding disputed and vulnerable areas, such as Makhmour and its Mount Qarachokh.
