The area known as Sultan Abdullah Heights southwest of the Iraqi city of Erbil is a place where fighting occurs on an almost daily basis between Kurdish Peshmerga forces and militants of the self-styled Islamic State. The Peshmerga in the area claim that, a few days ago, IS used chemical weapons against them which affected 22 of their fighters. VOA Kurdish Service stringer Ahmed Zebari reports from Iraq. Robert Raffaele narrates his report.
