Kurds Lose Oil Fields As Iran and U.S. Battle For Influence in Iraq (HBO)

Since the Kurdish referendum on Independence, Iraqi Kurds have lost their president, control of airspace and disputed territories — including the oil rich province of Kirkuk. It’s meant that hundreds of millions of dollars in profits from oil exports in the disputed territories are now entirely under Baghdad’s control.

The Kurdish region is faced with the sudden loss of resources – which had been vital in its push for independence. Meanwhile many Kurds are also angry at their long-standing allies, the US, for not intervening to stop the Kirkuk offensive – which was carried out by Iraqi forces and the Iranian backed Shia paramilitary group the PMU.

Vice News travels to the Baba Gurgur oil field in Iraq’s disputed territories – newly recaptured by Iraqi forces following the Kurdish vote on independence.

Defending New Kurdish Borders with the PKK: The Battle For Iraq (Dispatch 8)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

After conquering large swathes of Iraq and Syria, the Islamic State is now tearing up the near century-old map of the region and drawing new boundaries.

The ethnically mixed city of Kirkuk in northern Iraq was captured by the Kurds in mid-June, in the first days of the Islamic State’s advance. Outside the city, VICE NEWS interviewed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) fighters from Turkey, Iran, and northern Iraq, who are defending the new frontier of Kurdish villages from fighters from the Islamic State-held Sunni Arab villages only a few hundred meters away.

Clashes Continue as Frontline Tension Escalates: The Battle for Iraq (Dispatch 4)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

As the Kurds move further into Iraq’s disputed territories, not everyone is thrilled. In towns closer to Baghdad with higher Arab populations, like Jalawla and Sadiya, they have encountered fierce resistance from militant Sunni groups. While Kurdish peshmerga forces have been welcomed in many areas, they’ve needed to fight to enter others.

In our fourth dispatch amid the escalating crisis in Iraq, VICE News embedded with the peshmerga as they struggle to maintain control over their land, as tension in Iraq heightens between its main ethnic and religious factions.

We also spoke with a Sunni tribal leader in Kirkuk about the recent Kurdish takeover and the strategic importance of the city, and with Kurdish soldiers about why they volunteered to fight — and how they are successfully fending off advances from ISIS and the Iraqi Shiite military nearby.
