The Kurdish militia known as the Peshmerga have withdrawn from the Assyrian town of Teleskof. 

This came after Kurdish authorities and Iraqi Federal forces came into an agreement to allow Iraqi Security Forces to take over.

The Kurdish pull-out follows meetings with  Peshmerga command agreeing to leave the disputed areas instead of fighting after suffering heavy casualties.

In response to the event, one resident said “God bless the Iraqi Army, we have been waiting for 3 years for them. I am so happy I finally have a future for my children.”
