VIDEO: Peshmerga training with M16 rifles

By Rudaw 10/3/2016
Several thousand Peshmerga soldiers are being trained by their US and other coalition partners on the use of new weapons and techniques of urban warfare.

Some of the training is taking place inside Peshmerga bases. Some in construction sites and unfinished buildings, particularly the training for street fights.

is this a joke, rudaw are you trying to bring our brave peshmerga down this vedio is a f**** joke I bet you are not going to publish this

This is bs. Peshmergas don't need training. Peshmergas need weapons. Who're people, we Kurds love you guys and respect you guys, but tell your government we need weapons not training. Arabs need weapons, money, training, and more money.

I guess you think Peshmergas were naturally born with knowledge and experience in use of M16 rifles and of MILAN missiles and of close-quarter urban combat and of defusing IEDs. Only ignorant and egotistical idiots would reject instruction and knowledge.
