ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — Islamic State militants resumed assaults against the Peshmerga on the Khazir front Monday, using three military vehicles rigged with explosives to launch their attack, Peshmerga Brigadier General Dilshad Maulood of the Zeravani Peshmerga command told Rudaw.
“Earlier this evening, ISIS militants ramped up their efforts to launch an attack against the Peshmerga on the Khazir front,” Maulood said. “Before targeting the Peshmerga, ISIS convoys were destroyed by the Peshmerga and coalition air raids.”
