ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—Iraq’s armed forces command warned on Sunday against foreign planes breaching Iraq’s airspace and arming a 'certain Iraqi faction'.

Iraq’s armed forces that are still officially under former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, said in a public statement, “We have noticed that in recent days foreign fighter jets have breached Iraq’s airspace and delivered arms to a certain faction inside Iraq without Baghdad’s permission”.

The statement that mentions 'northern Iraq' as a clear reference to the Kurdistan Region warns all foreign countries against exploiting Iraq’s security situation and violating Iraq’s sovereignty.

Maliki was forced by President Fuad Masum last week to step down as prime minister after almost eight years in office.

“We welcome international support for Iraq in its war against terrorism.”

“But Iraq’s territorial sovereignty must be respected.”

Last week saw a surge in foreign military aid to the Kurdish forces who fight the Islamic State (IS) on several fronts in Nineveh, Kirkuk and Diyala.

Maliki, a Shiite leader from the Dawa Party, has long been blamed by the Kurds for undercutting the Peshmerga forces by freezing their budget and banning the purchase of arms.

  1. You Do Realize that the U.S. Funded and Trained ISIS, Right? - See more at: http://www.thedailysheeple.com/you-do-realize-that-the-u-s-funded-and-trained-isis-right_082014#sthash.aHUKRpY2.dpuf

    Just so we are all clear here.

    Now that ISIS, or the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, is becoming a threat so powerful Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon that the terrorist group is “beyond anything we’ve seen,” it’s time to remind everyone of a few little factoids regarding how exactly that came to be.

    Hagel’s exact quote was:

    “They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of … military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we’ve seen.”

    Well-trained in military prowess. Tremendously well-funded. Super sophisticated terrorists. Hm.

    And how do you think they got that way so fast? Super magic terrorist training money tree fairy dust?
    Apparently the mainstream establishment media would more likely attempt to have people believe such a thing exists rather than expose the blatant reality that yes, the U.S. has trained and funded ISIS and without the U.S. government, ISIS would not be the threat it has become.
