Iraqis say Iran has seized oil well in Iraq, demand withdrawal

The Iraqi government Friday demanded the withdrawal of an Iranian "armed group" that it says seized an oil well in southern Iraq on Thursday night.

"The council stressed that such incidents would be considered a violation of the border and violated Iraq's sovereignty and its territories and calls upon Iran to pull out the group from well No. 4 and take down the Iranian flag from the tower of the well immediately," Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said in the statement.

With all the latest attention focusing on Iran, this move looks strange. What remains to be seen is whether this incursion issue gets blown up or whether it ends up as a damp squib. There are no information that might indicate the nature of this "armed group", i.e. whether they are Iranian armed forces, or some local ragtag insurgents. It is also not known whether this incursion had the approvals of Iranian government or whether this was a rogue act.
