Army in 'full control' of central Kirkuk: Iraqi govt

Iraqi government forces
Iraqi government forces have assumed "full control" over Kirkuk's city center, according to a statement issued late Monday by the army's Joint Operations Command.


The statement listed facilities in Kirkuk that the army had appropriated from Kurdish Peshmerga forces (loyal to northern Iraq's Kurdish Regional Government), who reportedly withdrew from the city and its outskirts before the Iraqi army advance.

These facilities include Kirkuk's main airport, the Northern Petroleum Company, the K1 military base, the Mulla Abdullah oil refinery and the Tikrit Bridge, among others.

Earlier Monday, Iraqi forces reportedly assumed control over central Kirkuk's main government headquarters, according to a local police source.
