Is ISIS re-emerging in the Middle East?

Following a spate of Islamic State (ISIS) attacks on villages located in the security vacuum of the disputed areas between Iraq and the Kurdistan Region, Peshmerga forces were deployed to the village of Liheban in Kirkuk’s Sargaran sub-district on Monday in a sign of the increasing cooperation with Iraqi forces attempting to limit further violence.

The deployment comes after an uptick in ISIS attacks on Peshmerga forces and civilians in villages situated across the disputed land, as the terrorist group has taken advantage of security gaps between Peshmerga and Iraqi forces.

On Saturday, Iraqi and Kurdish forces held a high-level security meeting in Baghdad to boost cooperation between the two forces, and they have now established military bases in coordination with the Iraqi army which has enabled the Peshmerga to be deployed in Liheban, near Mount Qarachogh in Makhmour: a village they had previously only limited access to, being situated in the disputed area.

On Sunday, Liheban villagers fled their village due to a sustained ISIS attack, as ISIS concurrently attacked a Peshmerga checkpoint near the village of Qara Salim close to the town of Pirde.

Many villagers from Liheban returned to their homes on Monday, with one villager estimating that around 30 families have returned, and it is expected that more will follow now Peshmerga forces are stationed in their village.
