IRAQ: Severed from Land, Life, and Home, Part II, “What Kind of Life is this?”

Along the northeastern border of Iraq, CPT has been working to amplify the voices of 137 Iraqi Kurdish families from the Pshdar District who are currently living in the Zharawa Internally Displaced People's (IDP) camp, because Iran and Turkey bombed their villages.  Both governments accuse the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) of allowing PKK and sympathizers to occupy these villages and therefore claim their militaries have the right to trespass into sovereign Iraqi territory.  Additionally, the U.S. has given military intelligence to Turkey and sits on a trilateral military commission with Turkey and Iraq Central Government to plan military engagements with the PKK.
