Surrendered places in Southern Kurdistan

ANF: The process centered around Kirkuk launched by the Iraqi army and the Hashd al-Shaabi on October 16 after the referendum held on September 25 continues at a great price to Kurds. Many provinces, districts, villages and oil-rich areas under control of the Southern Kurdistan Regional Government before the September 25 Referendum has been handed over to the Iraqi Central Government and the Hashd al-Shaabi. The Iraqi army is taking back the areas they retreated without resistance from in 2014 during the ISIS attacks. Some areas were invaded as a result of the Iraqi army and Hashd al-Shaabi attacks, while many others are just handed over in accordance with the deal the Hewler administration made. The following is a list of places the Southern Kurdistan Regional Government has handed over to the Iraqi Central Government and the Hashd al-Shaabi with the process that began on October 16:
