Dog of war: Yelping puppy is saved by Peshmerga fighters who bandage its legs after it steps on ISIS landmine

This is the moment Peshmerga fighters tended to a dog said to have been injured when stepping on an ISIS landmine.

The distressing footage from Iraq shows the puppy screeching in pain while a group of men huddle around it and try to help.

Some of the fighters hold the dog steady to stop it from trying to escape, while the others set about mending its injured leg.
