The video released by AP TAC, an Italian Peshmerga fighter and tactics instructor, shows him together with a Peshmerga special operations unit called Heza Rashaka, also known as Task Force Black during combat operations agains ISIS to clear the village of Bashir, Kirkuk.
The unit provided security for the creation of a fighting position outside the village by a front loader as the machine took a direct RPG hit during a sudden ISIS ambush that erupted in a fierce firefight between the Peshmerga Special Forces and ISIS. The fight was ended after coalition forces close air support silenced the IS militants. All in all the operation to clear Bashir was a success. Interesting to see is also the fact that some of the Kurdish special forces were wearing Kryptek Mandrake camouflage pattern uniforms.
