"Iraqi federal police and counterterrorism forces, along with Hashd al-Shaabi fighters, have deployed in - and imposed security on - the sub-district", the Iraqi defence ministry said in a statement.
Iraqi troops and allied militia retook the northern province of Kirkuk and its lucrative oil fields on Monday and Tuesday, as well as formerly Kurdish-held areas of Nineveh and Diyala provinces - all outside the KRG region.

Iraq's neighboring countries, especially Turkey, Iran and Syria, fear that the Iraqi Kurds' pursuit of independence threatens their territorial integrity, as large Kurdish populations live in those countries. Iraqi security forces on Monday fully recaptured the city of Kirkuk and took control of the government building after the Kurdish forces withdrew from the city, a local security source told Xinhua.

Although Kirkuk is outside the autonomous region, many Kurds consider it the heart of their historic homeland and its oil to be their birthright. And they are attacking from Dibis also, and there is nothing we can do about it, honestly.
The peshmerga had moved into Kirkuk after the Iraqi army fled the region in the face of Daesh's advance in 2014.
Al-Abadi said Kurdish hopes for an independent state were now "a thing of the past".
