In recent months, Iraqi Kurdistan, like other points in Iraq, has become a scene of the proxy conflicts between Tehran and Washington. Rocket strikes and explosive Drones attacks on Erbil’s airport and even downtown Erbil will have negative effects on the stability and political role of the region.

(PKK) settled in Sinjar and their occasional clashes with Turkish and Peshmerga forces associated with Masoud Barzani are another problem for Kurdistan.
