    According to Iraqi MP, Salim Al-Shabaki, Turkish troops have withdrawn from the Zilkan base in Northern Iraq.

    Turkish state media said it was what a military official source referred to as a “rearrangement”.

    This comes just hours after Turkish president, Erdogan stated that he had no intentions to pull Turkish troops out of the region, and Baghdad insisted it was a breach of Iraqi sovereignty.

    The developments are considered a triumph for Iraqi PM, Haider Al-Abadi, due to his perseverance in achieving a peaceful resolution with Ankara and Erbil.

    The announcement for withdrawal was made at 5:00AM local time.
