Crossing the arid mountain of Sinjar along Iraq's borders with Syria you reach the town of Sinjar.

A little more than a week ago the Kurdish troops launched an all-out campaign to retake the town which fell to ISIL's control back in August. Abandoned cars, clothes, TVs and other possessions along the way - thrown on the ground by those who fearfully fled ISIL's attack on what now looks like a ghost city. With no one to ask around for directions; smoke and sounds of rounds of gunfire were our only lead to reach the destination. We finally reached a damaged building which the Kurdish troops had taken as headquarters. A Kurdish lieutenant was showing us around. The mortars are not the only worry for the Peshmergas who tell us that ISIL snipers are non-stop. The Kurdish troops tell us they're hawk-eyed, answering back to all sources of fire. A Kurdish field commander from the Special Forces tells Press TV they have managed to put the extremist militants on the retreat. ISIL has left the town chockfull of explosives - something that has caused many injuries among the Kurdish troops. The Kurds have made a great advance in Sinjar, though it seems they're still having a long way to go in securing it. The fall of Sinjar to the Kurds is seen as a spine-breaking hit for ISIL and the biggest loss yet for the terror group - as their main supply lines between the province of Raqqa in Syria and the city of Mosul in Iraq have been completely cut off; something which the Kurdish troops tell us will effectively weaken the terror group in any future confrontation especially one meant to retake Mosul.
