The PKK Fighters in the Sinjar

    The video embedded below is a documentary about the Kurdish PPK troops fighting the ISIS forces which had surrounded Mount Sinjar in late 2014. Before the siege, now know as the Sinjar Massacre, was broken, ISIS had managed to kill 5,000 Yazidi civilians. Its interesting to see what weapons the Kurdish militias are using. I even spotted a H&K G36 (pictured above).

    I must point out that the PPK are officially classified by the USA, Turkey and a number of other countries as a terrorist organization. In most Western countries (and I am sure non-Western countries as well) joining a terrorist organization is a very serious crime. If any TFB readers are looking to join the fight against ISIS, don’t join the PPK.
