A Peshmerga fighter stands behind sandbags at a checkpoint, in Zummar city in the northern Iraqi Governorate of Nineveh, on December 18, 2014Nahyat al-Ayadhiya (Iraq) (AFP) - Iraqi Kurds claimed Thursday to have broken a siege on a mountain where Yazidi civilians and fighters have long been trapped as the US said air strikes killed several Islamic State leaders in recent weeks. The Kurdish advances came during a two-day blitz into the Sinjar region involving 8,000 peshmerga fighters and some of the heaviest air strikes since a US-led coalition started an air campaign four months ago. Masrour Barzani, the son of the Kurdish president and the intelligence chief for the Iraqi autonomous region, said the peshmerga advance had broken the siege on Mount Sinjar. "Peshmerga forces have reached Mount Sinjar, the siege on the mountain has been lifted," he told reporters from an operations centre near the border with Syria.
