IS Retreats From Iraqi Villages But Leaves Lethal Roadside Bombs Behind

  • Dilshad Anwar

Kurdish forces backed by airstrikes from a U.S-led coalition drove Islamic State militants out of nine villages in northern Iraq on Friday, Kurdish authorities said. But the militants left behind numerous roadside bombs that killed many Kurdish fighters and volunteers as they entered those villages. Roger Wilkison narrates this report for VOA's Kurdish service by Dilshad Anwar.
