Kurds issue call to arms against ISIL

Peshmerga forces say the lack the necessary training, expertise and weaponry to deal with ISIL.

    Three months of fighting in northern Iraq has taken its toll on Kurdish peshmerga forces.

    At least 200 people have been killed battling ISIL, but injured Peshmerga fighters believe the true figure to be much higher.

    They say they don't have the training, expertise or weaponry to deal with ISIL.
