Peshmerga foil 9 car bombs on northern Mosul front

By Rudaw 16/12/2015
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Peshmerga forces foiled nine car bombs deployed by Islamic State (ISIS) militants on the Nawaran front in northern Mosul on Wednesday, where clashes are ongoing, a Kurdish Peshmerga commander told Rudaw.

The commander, who spoke to Rudaw on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media, said there were casualties among the Peshmerga, but that no official figure has been released so far.

The Nawaran front is on the Nineveh plain, 10 kilometers from northern Mosul.

Earlier Wednesday, the militants launched several assaults against the Peshmerga on different battlefields.

Six Peshmerga soldiers were killed when their base near Kaske, west of Mosul, was attacked by ISIS suicide bombers. Two other suicide bombers were killed before they could detonate their payloads.

On Wednesday afternoon, ISIS militants breached Peshmerga defense lines near the Domez military base in Shingal with two car bombs.

One was taken out by a Milan missile and the other by coalition warplanes, according to Brig. Hakar Mohsin, a Peshmerga commander on the front. He said there were no injuries or casualties to the Peshmerga from that attempt.'

Also Wednesday, ISIS militants launched a prolonged mortar barrage at a military base in Bashik in eastern Mosul, where Turkish forces are training Sunni militiamen, killing two of the trainees and wounding six. The Turkish trainers were reportedly unhurt.

What does everybody think?? Turkey to blame?? It's ironic every time Turks are nearby Isis attacks. Think about it.
