A group of Kurdish Islamic clerics have declared jihad against the Iraqi Federal Forces, calling them “Shias”, to defend Kurdistan.

Earlier today, the Iraqi Federal Forces and Kurdish Peshmerga, the military force of the ruling regime of the autonomous Iraqi province of Kurdistan agreed to a ceasefire and withdrawal of Peshmerga units from the Assyrian town of Faysh Khabour.

According to the agreement, all of the Nineveh Plains will now be in control of Iraqi Forces and the Assyrian groups. 

In the past, some of Kurdistan’s clerics have already been expressing hostilities towards religious minorities living in the province.
