Disputed territories

Territories in northern Iraq between the border with Syria and the border with Iran. The Kurds and the Iraqis claim a right to these lands. The most important cities are Sinjar, Bashiqa, Kirkuk, Tuz Churmatu (clashes between Shiah and Kurdish militias still take place there), Jalawla and Chanaqin. Most of them came under control of the Kurds, when the Iraqi army left northern Iraq running from ISIS in 2014.
