Peshmerga Push ForwardDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures. 11/09/2015. Kirkuk, Iraq. Kurdish peshmerga fighters walk through the, previously Islamic State held, village of Zankhar. The village was captured during a peshmerga offensive to expand a safety zone around the city of Kirkuk, Iraq.
The offensive, which went unchallenged after ISIS left the area ahead of the attack, saw the peshmerga capture 15 villages along the Kirkuk front line. The objective of the offensive was to expand the safety zone around Kirkuk, stopping militants from firing missiles and rockets in to the city of Kirkuk. 3 peshmerga were killed and 24 wounded due to improvised explosive devices left behind by the militants.
