The New Iraq Frontline

October 4, 2014


A photo from #Iraq’s frontline south of #Kirkuk , showing a badly damaged mosque. We headed there yesterday after hearing the #Peshmerga had taken several villages from #IS in the last 48 hours. The place was very badly shot up. The Peshmerga claimed there was only 1 casualty on their side, but that the death toll was much higher on the other side. They told us IS was fighting like a strong, professional, well run army. But it was also using guerrilla tactics, like laying a lot of roadside bombs before they retreat from an area.
