Iraqi security forces on Friday took control of 44 oil wells in disputed areas in Iraq's northern province of Nineveh after the withdrawal of Kurdish Peshmerga forces, the Iraqi military said.


The army's 15th Division took full control of the town of Zummar, some 60 km northwest of Nineveh's provincial capital Mosul, in addition to the nearby 44 oil wells in the oil fields of Ayn Zala and Butma, the media office of the Iraqi Joint Operations Command (JOC) said in a brief statement.

Earlier in the day, the Iraqi forces redeployed in the town of Altun Kupri, some 40 km north of Kirkuk, and took full control of the town after clashes in the morning with the Peshmerga forces.

The strategic town of Altun Kupri is located between Kirkuk and the Kurdish regional capital of Erbil.

The advance in Nineveh province and Atlun Kupri came a few days after the Iraqi forces recapture the oil installations, oil fields and pipelines in the oil-rich Kirkuk province and other disputed areas outside the Kurdish region.
