ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Kurdish forces from the People’s Protection Units (YPG) backed by the Peshmerga have pushed out so-called Islamic State fighters from their bases in Shingal, Mosul province, a Peshmerga commander told Rudaw.
 
In a joint operation, Peshmerga forces and YPG Kurdish fighters have forced ISIS fighters to retreat. These fighters were conducting multiple attacks on YPG bases in Gabar village near the town of Shingal, Shingal Peshmerga Cmdr. Issa Zeway said Sunday.
 
Officials announced there were no Peshmerga casualties and no figure for ISIS casualties was available.
 
In recent months, Shingal has been struggling to recover from a devastating ISIS attack from last year that unleashed a spree of killings, rapes and kidnappings against the area's predominantly Kurdish Yezidi population.
 
The YPG, the military wing of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Syrian Kurdistan, entered the Kurdish Yezidi-dominated region of Shingal after the surprise assault by ISIS last year.

"The YPG, the military wing of the Kurdistan Workers Party" when did YPG become the "military wing" of the PKK? can Rudaw hire some decent journalists that at least have basic knowledge? how embarrassing.

The Syrian Kurds, and the Iraqi Kurds should integrate their militias and then separate the militias from all of the political parties making it a true professional force. Then the new Kurdish military should move into Syria and make all of the Kurdish Cantons continuous territory. Ask if the minorities would like to join the new Kurdish state and explain to them that they will be considered full citizens, and then incorporate their militias into the new Kurdish army. Then push to Mediterranean and get your country some coastal real estate, I believe the Druiz would join your country also.
