TAL AFAR, Mosul Province – Kurdish Peshmerga forces have repelled a series of ISIS attacks on their military bases in Tal Afar, some 63km west of Mosul city, a Kurdish commander told Rudaw.

“It was only a one-hour clash between our forces and the Daesh [ISIS] gunmen,” Hashem Sitay told Rudaw on Saturday, adding that the ISIS attack came in the early morning.

“They have been driven out by our forces and now they are in retreat,” Sitay added.

No Peshmerga casualties have been reported and the number of ISIS fighters killed remains unknown.

Kurdish forces have been protecting the borders of the Kurdistan region’s since last year when ISIS took control of some parts of Iraq and Syria.

You must attack ISIS in Raqqa as soon as possible and make them pay for what they did in Kobane many times over.

Nuke Raqqa. Nuke Mosul. Convert these ISIS sand-niggers into carbon.

Why is there is no news of offence from our Peshmerga forces, only defence? Why stop there? We need more recruits on the line to continue with the offensive and attack these SOBs 24/7 each taking turns and push them further away. These bearded savage dogs are busy digging tunnels underground passing through our own defences giving them enough time to surround our men by attacking from behind.

US only can trust the Kurds, it's been long due that he dumps Turkey and supports Kurds unconditionally.
