The war started when ISIS killed 12 Peshmerga in Sinjar and made a massacre of the civilian population mostly Yazidi and Christians. “Peshmerga” in Kurdish means ”Those who face death.” The Peshmerga strength are consider to be over 250,000 fighters. The Peshmerga has proven to be an effective army. (Now if only Obama would give them the weapons that he promised to give them a long time ago)
