Someone at your office have been collaborated with Daesh and told them where to kidnap them otherwise how Daesh knew where they were? Rudaw should look among its employees to see who is working for Imam Erdoghan and Daesh?

Rudaw journalists should stop interview ISIS terrorist, and they wont get cought. Instead of giving the mic the civilans in Kobane, YPG/PKK fighters in Shingal, Peshmerga struggling in Kerkuk, families of those who left Halabja to fight along with ISIS, and much more. They decide to interview ISIS. Is it for more views? money?
