    ISIS SUFFERS HEAVY DEFEAT
    Following 2 days of fierce clashes, Rabia has been taken under the control by YPG forces on 5 August. 
     
    While the peshmerga forces have retreated from Rabia, members of the Shammar tribe of Ehmedi Deham in the ranks of the YPG were in the frontline. 
     
    Fierce clashes have been taking place in Rabia since 2 August.
     
    A heavy defeat was inflicted on the ISIS gangs in these clashes, resulting in their losing their emplacements.
     
    The ISIS gangs launched an attack on peshmerga forces deployed in the Zumar and Kesk region on 2 August. 
     
    A peshmerga commander and 14 peshmerga lost their lives in these attacks while Zumar and Kesk were seized by ISIS.
     
    On 2 August the KDP peshmerga forces withdrew from the city leaving PUK pershmerga alone in the face of ISIS attacks.
     
    Given the situation, YPG forces went to the region in support of PUK peshmerga and took part in the defence of Rabia with these peshmerga.
