Iraqi Turkmen Front (ITF) head Arshad Al-Salihi evaluated the plan for setting up a Turkmen security force which was high on the agenda after rising terrorist attacks targeting Turkmens, and said that such a force should cover not only Tuz Khurmatu district of Saladin city but also regions whereTurkmencommunities were living, and especially Kirkuk.
Tuesday’s attack was noted as one of the biggest ones targeting Turkmens in the last two years. Deputy head of Iraqi Turkmen Front Ali Hasim Muhtaroglu lost his life in a suicide attack in Tuz Khurmatu. Two suicide bombers had detonated the bombs on their bodies killing 13, and wounding 71 people.
ITF has been discussing about how to form Turkmen security force and how to describe the realm of authority with where to cover as local security forces to protect Turkmens who were targeted by attacks in Iraq.
