  • Business brisk for Kurdish gunsmith in Iraq

    In gunsmith Bahktiyar Sadr-Aldeen's workshop in the Kurdish city of Irbil, every weapon has a story. Sadr-Aldeen, an Iraqi Kurd, has seen business increase by 50 percent since last June, when Islamic State militants took over Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, 82 kilometres (52 miles) west of Irbil. The Kurdish fighting force known as the pershmerga has been at war against the Islamic State militant group ever since. Sadr-Aldeen says there is "no professional company" to fix all the weapons that "naturally break" during the fighting. "That is why I fix them. We cannot just throw them away, because we are in a war," he explained. Aged 36, Sadr-Aldeen already has more than a quarter-century of experience, making him the peshmerga's top gunsmith in the region. He says he now fixes ei...

  • Situation in Kirkuk where Iraqi Kurds have seized control of the city

    After a decades-long dispute between Arabs and Kurds over the oil-rich northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, it took just an hour and a half for its fate to be decided. As al-Qaida-inspired militants advanced across northern Iraq and security forces melted away, Kurdish fighters who have long dominated Kirkuk ordered Iraqi troops out and seized full control of the regional oil hub and surrounding areas, according to a mid-ranking Army officer. However Kurdish forces - known as the peshmerga - say they had only moved in after Iraqi troops retreated. "Such information is wrong," said Brigadier General Sarhad Qadir, who is leading a group of peshmerga, local police and volunteers in defending the area from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). "ISIL came fighting to these places and ...

    The president of Iraqi Kurdistan has signalled it will draw the borders of a future Kurdish state if Baghdad does not accept a vote for independence in a referendum due later this month. Massoud Barzani told the BBC he wanted to reach an agreement with the central government if Kurds opted to secede. Iraq's prime minister has rejected the referendum as unconstitutional. Mr Barzani also warned the Kurds would fight any group that tried to change the "reality" in Kirkuk by force. Kurdish Peshmerga forces have taken control of the oil-rich city, which has large Arab and Turkmen populations, and other areas claimed by Baghdad over the past three years while driving out the jihadist group Islamic State.

In gunsmith Bahktiyar Sadr-Aldeen's workshop in the Kurdish city of Irbil, every weapon has a story. Sadr-Aldeen, an Iraqi Kurd, has seen business increase by 50 percent since last June, when Islamic State militants took over Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, 82 kilometres (52 miles) west of Irbil. The Kurdish fighting force known as the pershmerga has been at war against the Islamic State militant group ever since. Sadr-Aldeen says there is "no professional company" to fix all the weapons that "naturally break" during the fighting. "That is why I fix them. We cannot just throw them away, because we are in a war," he explained. Aged 36, Sadr-Aldeen already has more than a quarter-century of experience, making him the peshmerga's top gunsmith in the region. He says he now fixes eight to 10 weapons a day compared to a few during his pre-war business. For three days, Sadr-Aldeen has been trying to polish the blood off an M16 rifle brought in by a pershmerga soldier last week. "It is an American made gun given to the Iraqi army in Mosul. Da'esh took it. It was in the hands of Da'esh (the Islamic State group) and five days ago it fell in the hands of peshmerga," he explained. Located in a cellar in Irbil's bazaar, Sadr-Aldeen's shop is a well-known spot for peshmerga soldiers. Darawan Abu Bakr, a 28 year-old fighter, on leave from his post outside the city of Kirkuk, is a regular customer. Visiting the shop to have a weapon fixed, Abu Bakr said, "I have brought other weapons to Bakhtiyar (Sadr-Aldeen) as well and he repaired all of them. He is very good at his job. None of the guns he repaired have malfunctioned again. They all worked perfectly." Now a father of five, Sadr-Aldeen has been working in the shop, which was started by his father, since he was a child. He took over the business when he was 11-years-old after his father was arrested by the forces of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. His father spent 10 years in prison and today is too old to work. Sadr-Aldeen also modifies weapons, taking special pride in his work fixing Kalashnikov rifles. He showed off one weapon with a shortened barrel that makes it lighter and capable of firing more powerful bursts of ammunition. "I modified every single part of it. The cover, the folding arm, the chamber, I made it fourteen years ago. It is all handmade," he said. He also does not limit his work to his shop. Sometimes Sadr-Aldeen goes out to the front lines himself, mostly to repair heavy weapons that cannot be transported. The peshmerga send a car and take him out to the front line to do his work. He said he does not charge for the battlefield repairs, saying that is his way of supporting the cause.

After a decades-long dispute between Arabs and Kurds over the oil-rich northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, it took just an hour and a half for its fate to be decided. As al-Qaida-inspired militants advanced across northern Iraq and security forces melted away, Kurdish fighters who have long dominated Kirkuk ordered Iraqi troops out and seized full control of the regional oil hub and surrounding areas, according to a mid-ranking Army officer. However Kurdish forces - known as the peshmerga - say they had only moved in after Iraqi troops retreated. "Such information is wrong," said Brigadier General Sarhad Qadir, who is leading a group of peshmerga, local police and volunteers in defending the area from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). "ISIL came fighting to these places and then they (Iraqi Army) withdrew and now we are here." The Kurdish takeover of the long-disputed city came days after the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and other Sunni militants seized much of the country's second largest city of Mosul and Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit before driving south toward Baghdad. On Saturday Qadir's forces took up positions near a village still under the control of the Sunni militants 35 kilometres (21.7 miles) west of Kirkuk. Meanwhile, a local Sunni tribal leader in Kirkuk believed that the takeover meant that the peshmerga forces were no better than ISIL. "Suddenly they (the Kurds) announced that they are the owner of these lands," said Sheikh Abdul-Rahman al Awaidi. "We as Arabs can call the peshmerga ISIL as well." Kirkuk, 290 kilometres (180 miles) north of Baghdad, is home to Arabs, Kurds and Turkmen. They all have competing claims to the oil-rich area and Kurds have long wanted to incorporate it into their self-ruled region, but Arabs and Turkmen are opposed.

The president of Iraqi Kurdistan has signalled it will draw the borders of a future Kurdish state if Baghdad does not accept a vote for independence in a referendum due later this month. Massoud Barzani told the BBC he wanted to reach an agreement with the central government if Kurds opted to secede. Iraq's prime minister has rejected the referendum as unconstitutional. Mr Barzani also warned the Kurds would fight any group that tried to change the "reality" in Kirkuk by force. Kurdish Peshmerga forces have taken control of the oil-rich city, which has large Arab and Turkmen populations, and other areas claimed by Baghdad over the past three years while driving out the jihadist group Islamic State. Shia militias have said they will not allow Kirkuk to be part of an independent Kurdistan.
