ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Kurdish artillery pounded the Islamic State (ISIS) on the Bashik front, southeast of the extremist-held city of Mosul, killing several the group’s militants, a Peshmerga official told Rudaw on Sunday.

“Later this evening the Peshmerga launched  a mortar operation targeting ISIS movements and bases near the Bashik front, killing two and wounding a dozen of the militants,” Brig. Gen. Musa Gardi, commander of the Halgurd command, said.

“Because of the fire, many mines and booby traps planted by ISIS, who were fearing our every advance, detonated by themselves,” he added.

Gardi said the Peshmerga did suffer any casualties.

In earlier clashes on the Bashik front, ISIS militants were repulsed in a fierce assault early April on Peshmerga stockades.

In the Kurdish version of the story on Rudaw there is a doctored photo of Peshmerga firing an M777 Howitzer. The Kurds do not have a single such weapons. The actual picture is of American soldiers, the photo has been doctored with Kurdish flag to make it look like that it's the Peshmerga. I am disappointed in the kind of journalism that Rudaw is presenting.

That's not an M777. It's and M38A1 or something like that...106 mm recoilless rifle. They are being used in combat in the middle east by the Afghans and others.

to "factual journalsim not lies" contained in this article (from several months ago) it talks about ISIS and iraq...and how america gave iraq m77 howitzers and that they ended up in ISIS's hands, then the peshmerga fought and took some from them therefore this picture is NOT a lie
