Iraqi Army, Kurds Join Forces At Khazir Front Line

Named after the town of Khazir, the flank pushing into the Islamic State (IS) militant group's stronghold of Mosul from the northeast is jointly operated by Iraq's Counterterrorism Service and the Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga forces. RFE/RL's Radio Farda visited the Iraqi military positions on October 22 and talked to Lieutenant General Abdul Wahhab al-Saidi, a commander in Iraq's Counterterrorism Service who led the operation to retake the city of Fallujah from IS militants in June.
