An ISIS armed group kidnapped two Arab farmers while they were busy harvesting wheat in the village of "Tanqara" in Jabara District, Garmian at one o'clock on Wednesday, Amanj Abdul Razzaq, Head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan's Jabara Committee told PUKmedia.


"The people of the region from the Kurds, Arabs and Turkmen are calling for the return of the Peshmerga forces to the area to participate in preserving security after the failure of the security forces present there." Abdul Razzaq said.
