  • MOST ADVANCED WEAPONS.
  • 00:20:10.317 --> 00:20:12.386
  • - IF ISIS WOULD HAVESUCCEEDED, AND THEY
  • 00:20:12.486 --> 00:20:14.422
  • DIDN'T BECAUSE THEPESHMERGA DEFEATED THEM,
  • 00:20:14.522 --> 00:20:16.824
  • IF THEY HAD SUCCEEDEDIN TAKING THIS AREA,
  • 00:20:16.924 --> 00:20:20.027
  • WHERE WOULD THEYHAVE GONE NEXT?
  • 00:20:20.127 --> 00:20:22.096
  • - IF WE HADN'T TAKEN THISAREA, THAT WOULD BE THE
  • 00:20:22.196 --> 00:20:24.899
  • CUT OFF BETWEENERBIL AND DUHOK.
  • 00:20:24.999 --> 00:20:27.735
  • SO IT WOULD BE A REAL THREATAND DANGEROUS FOR US.
  • 00:20:27.835 --> 00:20:31.205
  • THERE WAS ALSO ANOTHERPOINT THAT ISIS WAS
  • 00:20:31.305 --> 00:20:33.541
  • TRYING TO ATTACK BECAUSETHERE IS A HISTORIC
  • 00:20:33.641 --> 00:20:36.777
  • CHRISTIAN MONASTERYON THIS MOUNTAIN.
  • 00:20:36.877 --> 00:20:39.380
  • IT IS 1.600 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:20:39.480 --> 00:20:42.950
  • THEY WERE TRYING TO TAKEDOWN THIS MONASTERY AS WELL.
  • 00:20:43.050 --> 00:20:46.053
  • - NOW ISIS IS INSHAMBLES, DEFEATED HERE,
  • 00:20:46.153 --> 00:20:49.457
  • BUT THESE IRAQI SHIAMILITIAS, GENERAL, IF YOU

  • THE FRONT LINE YOU STILLHAVE THE FRONT LINE.
  • 00:21:00.367 --> 00:21:02.136
  • THE FRONT LINE HASN'TGONE AWAY BECAUSE
  • 00:21:02.236 --> 00:21:03.704
  • YOU JUST HAVE A NEWDANGER IN THE FORM OF
  • 00:21:03.804 --> 00:21:05.406
  • THESE SHIA MILITIAS.
  • 00:21:05.506 --> 00:21:06.874
  • - THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:21:06.974 --> 00:21:08.843
  • THE ONLY DIFFERENCEBETWEEN ISIS AND THE SHIA
  • 00:21:08.943 --> 00:21:11.312
  • MILITIA FRONT LINES ISTHERE IS NO SHOOTINGS.
  • 00:21:11.412 --> 00:21:15.516

  • WE WERE HOLDING THE GROUNDUNTIL OCTOBER 16, 2017.
  • 00:21:21.889 --> 00:21:26.660
