KIRKUK, Iraqi Kurdistan | Development thread

First i would like to write a brief about kirkuk's history

Kirkuk is currently a dispute city between Kurdistan and iraq whether it should stay under central or to be annexed to Kurdistan via a referendum by the Iraqi constitution article 140 to be held in a close future by the people of Kirkuk. it has been a kurdish city since it was first establish by the kurdish tribes called Guti . Kirkuk holds 10% of Iraq's oil hence the former dictator Saddam was ethnic cleansing the kurds kicking them out of the city and replacing them with Arab settlers.
Kirkuk a Kurdish city since the era of the Guti (ancestors of the kurds) . There are Turkmen who came to kirkuk during the ottoman empire first in 1055 from Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan . Arabs from Salahadin Province also started migrating to the city after oil was first discovered in 1927 , They started settling in the Hawija sub-district in Kirkuk province. There are also some Chaldean that live in the city which are very small in number . one after another the former iraqi governments took kirkuk's oil and used the money to destroy the city kick out the kurds and replace them with Arab settlers from mid and south of iraq , many kurds wish kirkuk didn't have oil because it would have been part of the KRG by now.

The city is controlled and administrated by Kurdistan however it is not official. there is the constitutional law article 140 whether to join the autonomous region of Kurdistan via a referendum. its not the oil the kurds are after there are plenty of oil in the 3 provinces (45 Billion barrels of oil)but cos its a city formed by Gutian ancestors of kurds 2400 BC.

MoT minister visits Kirkuk to build airport



Kirkuk Governor Nejmadin Karim said Hadi al-Amri, Minister of the Ministry of Transportation (MoT) would visit Kirkuk to check on the plans for building a civilian airport here.


Karim said, “The MoT minister has promised to visit Kirkuk in order to accelerate the process of building a civilian airport and developing the transportation sector in Kirkuk.” The Kirkuk governor met with the MoT minister last month to discuss the possibility of building a civilian airport.

It was decided that the civilian airport is to replace the current Huriya (Azadi) airport which was used from 2003 to November of 2011 as a US troops base. “The Kirkuk administration will start forming an expert committee from relevant directorates and the Kirkuk Provincial Council (KPC) to start the project,” according to Kirkuk’s governor.

The KPC unanimously decided to change the Hurriya airport to a civilian airport in November of 2011 and hand its control over to the security forces of the province.

Kirkuk to build 5000 residential units



Kirkuk governor Najmadeen Karim decided Wednesday to build 5000 residential units in Kirkuk for the city’s poor.

There are an increasing number of renters while housing shortcomings is one of the prominent crises in Kirkuk and other Iraqi cities beside bad security situations.

The governor stated today in a meeting with Kirkuk investment committee and a number of the city’s investor that a plan has been made by the committee includes building 5000 residential units in the city that will be sold to the poor people at a reasonable price.

Karim made sure that the city’s administration will not prioritize any investors or any firms, saying that there will be a transparent tendering process.

Falah Bazzaz head of the committee said that a portion of land in the northern city has been allocated to the project as a bid to address the housing problems.

There are a great number of people who live in the governmental buildings and cannot afford to buy new houses due to poverty. Those people will be prioritized to be settled in the new houses, Karim said.

Karim said on June 6 that they will build 670 houses on the petrodollar budget.
