Mazloum Kobani, the General Commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), has decried the assault on the office of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Baghdad where IMIS Hashd al-Shaabi supporters burned the Kurdistan flag.

“The burning of flags, symbols and headquarters is not a civilized way to express political differences. The sanctities and symbols of peoples must be protected, and those who violate the law must be held accountable for the principles of coexistence” Mazloum Kobani wrote on his Twitter, on Oct 18.

He also added that hundreds of thousands of Kurd “were martyred in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to raise their flag, liberate their land from dictatorship and terrorism, and establish peace.”

So far several political factions and leaders inside Iraq, including foreign diplomatic representatives have denounced burning of KDP office and Kurdistan flag in Baghdad.
