Peshmerga digging trenches at the Bashiqa front
This bulldozer is drawing the borders of the Kurdistan Region. This is the point from which the Peshmerga will not advance any farther in their operations to evict ISIS from Mosul. On the opposite side from here, bulldozers are also digging trenches.
This has all the makings of a historical event.
Beyond this trench, the Iraqi army is advancing on Gogjali, or the the Mosul Gate.
After both Tiz Kharabi Gawra and Tiz Kharabi Bchuk came under their control, the Peshmerga began drawing their borders.
“The is the last point, it is the border that President Barzani assigned for us. If we are commanded, we will advance further. But for the time being we are here,” a Peshmerga official, told Rudaw.
