ERBIL — Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and Hashd al-Shaabi have made agreements according to which Hashd al-Shaabi will secure a route through Sinjar to northern Syria (Rojava), and PKK will establish a trade route between Rojava and Iraq.
Waheed Bakozi, head of Sinjar’s branch of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), told BasNews that PKK has agreed to allow Hashd al-Shaabi to secure a route through Khanasor district in Sinjar to connect the militia group to Syria.
Furthermore, PKK can open a trade route between Rojava (Syrian Kurdistan) and Iraq to establish business relations.
The official added that the way PKK is treating Kurdistan Region’s soil is similar to the way the former Baathist regime treated it, stressing that their plans won’t be successful.
Hashd al-Shaabi managed recently to reach the Iraq-Syria border in western Nineveh province in cooperation and coordination with Sinjar Resistance Units (YBS), a PKK-affiliated armed group, after liberating a number Yezidi areas in southern Sinjar, the Yezidi majority region.
