Kurdish Forces Kill 300 ISIL Terrorists, Free 28 Villages in Sinjar
ISIL militants have been surrendering to advancing Peshmerga troops on the regular basis since supply routes connecting Iraq and Syria have been cut off heavy pounding by the US-led coalition airstrikes, a frontline commander of Kurdish forces in Gwer, Qadr Qadr, told Kurdish media outlet Bas News on Sunday.

He further explained that some jihadists retreated to their stronghold Mosul, while others continue surrendering to his units.

On Saturday, Peshmerga fighters reportedly captured three ISIL field commanders, who were attempting to sneak into the predominantly Kurdish Sinjar District in the northwest of Iraq, the DPA News Agency reported quoting sources in the Kurdish militia.

Run, Surrender or Die: Kurds Boot Out ISIL From Northern Iraq
Kurdish Peshmerga fighters liberated 28 villages and killed 300 terrorists during the fight to reclaim the strategic northern Iraqi city of Sinjar from ISIL earlier this month.

Kurds now control a road that connects Mosul and the town of Sinjar. ISIL fighters are looking for an escape, as their casualties keep increasing, Peshmerga General Taib Abdullah Gurdy told Sputnik in an interview.

According to the Peshmerga general, there are no Iraqi government troops fighting against ISIL, but several units of Kurdish volunteer militia forces.

ISIL is losing a large number of fighters and heavy weaponry. During a recent military operation, Kurds managed to kill Abu Jihad, a major ISIL intelligence officer in the Sinjar province, general Gurdy said.
