They may be "in TelAfar" but it is only the airfield by the look of it. It seems that the PMU are carefully avoiding all the towns, concentrating on cutting all the road links to end ISIS supplies.
The Iraqis are not totally stupid, the last thing they will want to do is to threaten the populations that the Turks believe they have a right to protect thereby giving the Turks a reason to invade in force, something the Iraqis are unlikely to be able to stop.
This is the Shia Crescent they are creating, next stop Deir and Palmyra cutting off ISIS from Jordan as well as Iraq
