MAKHMUR FRONT, Mosul province – Warplanes from the US-led coalition to combat the self-proclaimed Islamic State, or ISIS, have carried out a heavy attack on military bases on the Makhmur front, a Peshmerga official said.

“Early morning today, around 3am, two Apache helicopters from the coalition forces have hit the Daesh bases in Karmrdou village, west of Makhmur, and fully destroyed their bases,” Mahdi Yunes, a Peshmerga official and spokesman to the Kurdish forces in Makhmur, told Rudaw on Saturday.

Yunes said the Kurdish Peshmerga forces provided the coalition forces with necessary intelligence several hours before the operation.

According to Mahdi, the numbers of ISIS casualties is still unknown.    

Peshmerga forces backed by US-led coalition airstrikes are battling the ISIS extremists along nearly 700km of frontlines in the Kurdistan region.

Excellent!

The Peshmerga Forces should have their own Apaches. Until they have them (or other similar attack helicopters) maybe it's possible to have Peshmerga pilots trained on them at the Israeli Air Force Flight Academy. For the time being I guess that is all that can be achieved with the current united Iraq fairy tale policy of the Obama administration. At least Israel and Saudi-Arabia seam to make a correct assessment of the situation in "Shiiraq".
