IS Beaten Back in Rabia

October 9, 2014

 

Earlier this week we visited the town of Rabia, on the border between #Iraq # and #Syria , which Kurdish #Peshmerga troops recently recaptured from #IS .
This photo is from the ruins of a hospital in the town where IS held out for three days before it was destroyed by British airstrikes. The Peshmerga took us around the frontline where IS radicals have been using suicide attacks as one of their main weapons.
