Peshmerga digging new trench around Kirkuk

So apparently the Peshmerga is making is making progress establishing a new trench system south and west of Kirkuk city. The new trench will reportedly be supported by "fortresses" every 300 meters.

This is not the first time the Peshmerga dig a defensive trench around contested territory. But this one is said to be a little different. It includes GPS beacons, and, rumor has it, is meant to function as a new permanent border.
