American Volunteer Fighters in Campaign to Retake Mosul

Fala-Zrari Kurd MilitiaKurdish Peshmerga forces aided by local Arab tribesmen recaptured territory on the outskirts of Mosul last week, as Kurdish and Iraqi forces prepared to launch a major assault on the northern Iraqi city currently held by ISIS.

A four-day offensive by Kurdish Peshmerga began Sunday, Jan. 31, and ended with the seizure of two Arab villages southeast of Mosul, according to Falah Zrari, a Kurdish-American fighter who spoke with the Washington Free Beacon about the battle.
