Saudi owned daily says major clashes continue between Hezbollah/Iranian forces and Peshmerga

An excerpt from our Daily Briefing today:

On April 26, the Saudi-owned, London-based Asharq al-Awsat daily newspaper carried the following report: “Battles have re-erupted between the Peshmerga forces and the Shi’i Popular Mobilization Forces yesterday when the Shi’i militias tried to restore some of the areas from which they had pulled out during an earlier time, despite the ceasefire announcement between the two sides in the district of Tuz Khurmatu, in the governorate of Salahuddin.

“The militias of the so-called terrorist Lebanese Hezbollah as well as the forces of the Iranian Revolutionary Forces and the Popular Mobilization militias proceeded with torching and bombing many houses belonging to Kurdish citizens who had to desert their homes because of the ongoing battles in the city in the past two days.
