This is the eastern part of the city of almost one million people. Kurd have never had any freedom under continous occupations by past rulers and current Iraqi regime. Kurdish people are free and want to be independent without being under any ruler. There are more than five million Kurds in north Iraq , "South Kurdistan", which has been occupied by Iraq since its creation after World War One by Britain and France.
