  • 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...

  • Mosul’s favorite sweet shop back in business

    MOSUL, Iraq – A local sweet shop in Mosul whose brand has become a familiar name all over Iraq has reopened after years of closure because of the war against ISIS. With loads of trucks making their way into the liberated areas of Mosul, the direction of trade is largely one way, with little or no goods exported out of the city. Ahmad Halwani sweet shop, however, is different. The name reminds locals and others from around Iraq of Mosul before the war, where they used to buy their favorite baklava among other sweets flavored with walnut and pistachio. "Thanks to God, the shop suffered only material damage during the war,” Omar Ibrahim, nephew of the business owner, told Rudaw.

  • 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 ...

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.

Among the growing number of visitors are international media and business people as well as those returning from the Kurdish diaspora. • The capital and the seat of the Kurdistan Regional Government is Erbil, a city known in Kurdish as Hawler. The Citadel in Erbil is considered the world’s oldest continuously inhabited settlement. The next largest cities are Slemani and Duhok. Please note that Slemani is the KRG’s official English spelling, but it can also be found with other spellings such as Sulaimani, Suleimani, Sulaimaniyah, and Suleimaniah. • The Kurdistan Regional Government exercises executive power according to the Kurdistan Region’s laws as enacted by the democratically elected Kurdistan Parliament. Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani leads the current government. • Iraq’s Constitution recognizes the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Kurdistan Parliament as the region’s formal institutions and the Peshmerga forces as the Region’s legitimate security guard. • The current coalition government consists of several political parties that reflect the diversity of the Region’s population, which includes Chaldeans, Assyrians, Syriacs, Turkmen, Yazidis, Arabs and Kurds living together in harmony. • More than 65% of destroyed villages have been rebuilt since being razed during the Anfal campaign perpetrated by Saddam Hussein’s regime in the 1980s. • The Kurdish language is of Indo-European origin and is among the family of Iranian languages, such as Persian and Pashto, and is distinct from Arabic. The two main dialects are Sorani and Kurmanji. • The Kurdistan Region has eleven public universities and several licensed private universities. Some of them use English as the main language of teaching and examination, most notably the University of Kurdistan Hawler (UKH) and the American University of Iraq – Sulaimani (AUIS). • A new, liberal foreign investment law was ratified in June 2006, providing incentives for foreign investors such as the possibility of owning land, up to ten-year tax holidays, and easy repatriation of profits. • To rapidly benefit from its oil and gas resources, the KRG has signed dozens of production sharing contracts with companies from several countries. • The Kurdistan Region has international airports in Erbil and Slemani, with direct flights to and from Europe and the Middle East. A new international airport is under construction in Duhok. http://www.bot.gov.krd Unravel Travel TV http://www.unraveltraveltv.com Unravel Travel TV on You Tube http://www.youtube.com/Unra...

LEADIN Life for those living in Iraq's Northern Kurdish region is carrying on as usual despite the intensifying violence elsewhere. The city of Dohuk is on the border with Turkey, but for one family even the worsening conflict in the south cannot dampen their preparations for a local wedding. STORYLINE: Nashwa Zayto and her mother are shopping, buying gifts for the dowry for her sister's upcoming wedding. Picking out sugar pots, it's just another day for the two women in Dohuk, a city in Iraq's Northern Kurdish region. As other parts of the country descend into chaos, this city of one million people is an oasis of relative calm and stability. Many residents here say their lives have not been that affected by the conflict. "We are fine and feel very safe here," says Nashwa Zaytoh. "But we feel sorry for the people in other areas of Iraq because of the situation." In the last week parts of Iraq have been overrun by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), as it fights a fierce territorial battle with government troops. Hundreds of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands more have fled Iraq's northern cities as the group vows to take their fight to Baghdad. Although Iraq's second city Mosul is currently in ISIL control, and lies only 60 kms (37 miles) away from Dohuk, it's business as usual in one of the city's main shopping streets, Bazaar-e Gulan. Shopkeeper Ashty Shafeeg says his business hasn't seen a dip in trade. "For now, Duhok is safe. We haven't closed our shops, we can visit our families without any problems." Iraq's Kurds run the autonomous region in northern Iraq but even they are now involved in the crisis, and are protecting the eastern city of Kirkuk. Still, Shafeeg credits the Kurdistan Regional Government's leadership with making him feel safe. "It's all about our president, Massoud Barzani. We respect him and love him and he in turn protects us and our families," he explains. Despite not getting involved in Iraq's sectarian troubles over the last decade, and enjoying relative autonomy from Iraq's central government, ISIL are an unknown quantity. As such, the Kurdish government is taking no chances. The peshmerga,or Kurdish armed forces, have formed a perimeter along their region's border with ISIL controlled territories estimated to be some 1,000km (620 miles) long. But locals drinking in one of the city's many tea houses don't seem worried. Taher Rasheed has a son in the army in Western Iraq. "My son is a soldier and is in Rabia. There's no war there, the peshmerga control everything, even the borders." Should anything change, he says the army are prepared to fight. "But if the Daash (ISIL) attack them, they will attack back and fight for our land." For now, Dohuk remains open for business.

A Kurdish minibus driver said that he visits Mosul every month, stays for several days, and then heads home with some sweets bought from Ahmad Halwani. “It is not expensive, and this sweet is baked with ghee,” said the driver from Erbil. “Compared to Erbil sweets, this one has more pistachio in it.”

Alex Pineschi, former Italian Army veteran, started his specialized professional path in the United States where he worked together with the most important and well-known military and law enforcement instructors in the business. In 2009, he started his private company, AP TAC, aiming to develop a sound study program on operational procedures regarding firearms handling with the goal of adopting an innovative teaching method focused on providing the highest standards in the business. In 2011, Alex began to operate in the anti-piracy field as a private security contractor in high-risk zones in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Through the experience gathered, in 2014 he founded one of the first companies in that field with the aim of providing highly specialized training based on international standards. When in 2014 ISIS was beginning to be noticed as a worldwide threat, Alex observed with growing interest the evolution of the conflict until November 2014, when he opted for direct action and left for Kurdistan to join the Peshmerga fighters as a volunteer against the jihadist militia. In March 2015, he was given the responsibility by Kurdish authorities to manage and support the creation of a new Special Operations Force (SOF) unit. As such, Alex became one of the founders of an elite Military Police unit of Peshmerga fighters, named Task Force Black, which shortly was about to write one of the most important chapters of the story of the war against ISIS. Even though his duties were primarily centered on the training of the operators of Task Force Black, Alex volunteered to take part in all of the operations that his unit carried out during the difficult offensive to free the Kirkuk area from the occupation of the ISIS extremists. In January 2017, a risk he was aware of from the beginning of his journey presented itself in a significant manner, disrupting his life and potentially his relationship with his country. The Italian Judiciary initiated official inquiries into his status as a volunteer in order to dispel concerns of possible mercenary activity. Confident in his position, Alex cooperated fully during the investigation, which lasted more than four months. The verdict completely exonerated Alex, fully legitimizing his participation as a volunteer in the Task Force Black unit, officially recognized by the Kurdish government and supported by Italy. Due to his activity as an operator in the field of combat and his former experience in the military training business, Alex became Chief of Operations for the Erbil Training Center; the most important training organisation recognised by the Government of Kurdistan Region and a center of excellence that covers a wide range of operations in the field of training for both governmental units and private security companies. Alongside his duties in the field of professional training, Alex continues to serve with Task Force Black on the front lines in the fight against terrorism. Motivated by a strong dedication to the profession he loves, he continues to pursue additional direct experience in field operations. This experience represents a crucial means for his research to translate into increasingly valuable training that reflects the latest trends and tactics on the battlefield.

Local people and emergency crews scrambled to help the injured and remove bodies. Officials say many displaced Iraqis live near the area targeted in the blasts. At least one family appeared trapped on the roof of one of the burning buildings screaming and waving for help.

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.
