Iraqi journalist Ahmad Malal Talal claimed on his Twitter page that Mazlum Kobani, the commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces,the PKK branch in Syria, is in Baghdad now. He says Mazlum Kobani crossed the border by helicopter and came to Sulaimaniyah, and then was transported to Baghdad by special vehicles of Lahor Sheikh Jangi.
If this claim is true, it could also lead to tensions between Turkey and Iraq. And on the other hand, it can be considered as a kind of joint confrontation between the PKK and the PUK against the KDP in the Kurdistan Region. According to the journalist, the purpose of the meeting is to discuss the security of the Iraqi-Syrian border in the areas controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces.
