Silent Stance: Northern Iraq's Kurdish Region Mum Amid Israeli-Gaza Conflict Diplomacy

In the midst of heightened diplomatic efforts by Iraqi leaders to address the indiscriminate Israeli aggression on Gaza, the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq maintains an enigmatic silence on the ongoing conflict.

While the Iraqi federal government has consistently expressed "full support" for Palestine throughout the Israel-Palestine conflict, witnessing numerous casualties on both sides, the caretaker Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), Kurdistan Region's Presidency (KRP), and the Kurdish ruling parties have refrained from formalizing any stance regarding the war's potential regional destabilization.

Despite attempts by The New Arab to solicit comments from key figures, including the KRG spokesperson, the head of the KRG foreign relations office, the leader of the KRP's diwan, and the spokesperson of the three ruling parties, no responses were received.

The three principal ruling parties—Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), and Change Movement (Gorran)—have maintained a delicate alliance since 2018, forming the current KRG cabinet led by PM Masrour Barzani from the KDP.
