Unbowed, Iraqi Christians Train to Take on ISIS
Iraqi Christians are training to join in the fight against ISIS.
So far, a total of 600 Christian fighters have completed training courses and joined the Iraqi Security Force.
“Those young Christians are among the many training courses we have carried out. God willing, they expressed their readiness and willingness to join security forces to fight IS (Islamic State group) militants,” said trainer Ali Al-Atabi.
Much of the northern and western parts of Iraq are still controlled by ISIS jihadists. However, the Iraqi Defense Ministry says its gaining ground.
Over the weekend they issued a statement saying Iraqi Security Forces had repelled an ISIS attack on a town and vital dam in Anbar province.
