Kurds Fight Iran-Backed Militia in Iraq and Besiege Town

From the Free Beacon [1]:

A fierce battle between Kurdish forces and Turkmen Shia fighters in the northern Iraqi city of Tuz-Khurmatu threatens to subvert the pro-forma alliance of an Iran-backed Shia militia and Kurds against ISIS troops just a few kilometers away.

The mountainous region near Iraq’s northeastern border with Iran has been a bone of contention between Kurds, Turkmen Shia fighters, and ISIS since jihadi troops briefly occupied it and were pushed out two years ago.
