Kurdistan Region takes tight security measures
The Iraqi northern region of Kurdistan is under tight security after threats by the jihadist militants and as the refugee crisis in the region is getting worse.

A leading official in ruling Kurdistan Democratic Party said the region has taken tight security measures after threats by terrorists that they have sleeping cells in the region, adding that the crisis of the refugees that have entered the region from disputed parts of Iraq is another reason for the measures.

Amin Najar told al-Sharq al-Awsat that the huge number of refugees has increased pressure on the Kurdish officials who have been unable to shelter displaced people who are unable to quit the region too.

He further said a part of the tight security is due to claims by the terrorist group that it has sleeping cells and will make troubles for the region, adding that Kurdish forces of Peshmerga are in a good situation after they received weapons from some states.

He concluded that the security situation in the region is very good and the radical militants will not be able to infiltrate into Kurdistan Region.
