Sulaimani: Four suspected Islamic State (IS) militants were killed on Wednesday by Kurdish security forces (Asayish) on Azhdakh Mountain in the Sangaw sub-district, southwest of Sulaimani. A source told NRT a number of IS militants came under ambush by members of counter-terrorism forces after they moved onto Azdhdakh Mountain. One of the militant group’s members blew himself up, the source added. According to the source, three members of counter-terrorism forces were wounded. On August 15 an IS suicide bomber blew himself up at a platoon of security forces in the area of Delezha in the Governorate of Sulaimani, wounding four members of Asayish forces were injured due to the explosion. nrttv.com | Ekurd.net
[size=13]Iraqi Kurdistan government denies claims that Peshmerga destroyed liberated villages[/size]
Erbil: Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) responded on Wednesday to reports by international observers who claim Peshmerga forces have destroyed villages and civilian homes in areas regained from the Islamic State (IS). Head of the KRG’s High Committee to Evaluate and Respond to International Reports, Dindar Zebari, said during a press conference that officials formed a commission to investigate claims by observers, which Kurdish authorities have repeatedly denied. The KRG inquiry said in its findings that villages and houses in reclaimed areas were destroyed as a result of fighting with IS, Coalition airstrikes and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) detonated by militants. “There were also vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices that caused the explosion of those houses,” Zebari said. nrttv.com

[size=13]U.S. Consul-General responds to Iraqi Kurds call for apology from Trump[/size]
Erbil: U.S. Consul-General to Erbil Kenneth Gross released a written statement in response to a letter sent by the governor of Halabja to U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Trump, while acknowledging that Saddam was a “really bad guy,” has praised the former Iraqi dictator on more than one occasion for his handling of terrorists. In a letter sent on August 8 to Trump Tower, the Governor of Halabja, Abdullah Muhammad, demanded an apology from Trump over comments the Republican nominee has made on Saddam Hussein and the 1988 chemical gas attack in Halabja. Many considered Trump’s comments to make light of the atrocities committed by the Baath Regime. “I wish to express my deepest condolences to those who suffered in Halabja during the regime of Saddam Hussein. The United States government has been very clear in its public condemnation of the atrocities committed by Saddam Hussein and his government against his own people,” the statement by Gross included. nrttv.com
[size=13]As Islamic State is squeezed, hundreds of villagers fleeing to Peshmerga[/size]
Erbil: More than 400 villagers, including children, women, and the elderly, fled villages liberated by the Peshmerga over the weekend and reached Peshmerga frontlines. “We contacted the Peshmerga in Setyh village. They drove IS out of Setyh. Then the Peshmerga informed us not to move, but only raise white flags,” said a displaced person.  “They were flogging us 60 to 70 times in the streets, in public. They were also fining us 50,000 dinars. They were always ordering us to lengthen our beards,” another displaced who also escaped IS in Hawija, told Rudaw. But suspected IS militants also were found among the fleeing villagers. Peshmerga officials suggest opening another camp for the displaced on the Khazir front. All the IDPs will be transferred to the Debaga camp. rudaw.net
