Iraqi State Television has launched a brand new Kurdish channel.

The motivation to launch a new Kurdish channel is after a plethora of complaints of misinformation and incorrect travel details published by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
On September 25, the Kurdish authorities in Iraq conducted an unconstitutional independence referendum where the majority of participants voted in favor of independence.
As a response, regional states have halted international flights ending in Kurdish-administrated airports.
KRG authorities have consistently published misinformation in regards to travel from Iraqi Kurdistan.
