People cheer after Kurdish Peshmerga fighters took control Saturday of Sinjar, the northern Iraqi town that ISIS militants stormed this summer causing minority Yazidis to flee into nearby mountains and spawning a humanitarian crisis.
PESHMERGA COLONEL: "Peshmerga will continue pushing forward. Islamic State is being defeated and they have started to withdraw. They face a slight resistance and now they are fleeing and burning civilian homes. There was almost no resistance after their front lines collapsed. They started to flee and left behind 19 bodies. They have had many casualties."

The U.S. should be arming the Peshmerga forces with everything they need
