Independência do Curdistão 
6 | Novembro | 2017

Após a vitória do “Sim” no referendo de 25 de Setembro sobre a independência do Curdistão iraquiano, intensificou-se a tensão nas relações entre Bagdad e Erbil. A 16 de Outubro, o governo federal iraquiano lançou uma operação militar para restaurar a soberania na região, recuperando assim Kirkuk e os campos de petróleo que já tinha perdido para o Estado Islâmico, em Junho de 2014.
