Iraqi forces and Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have recaptured a village in northern Iraq after Islamic State militants took it over the previous day

Daesh militants attack village in northern Iraq killing at least five people.

Villagers from Liheban said they initially fought off ISIS’ attack during the day, but the village was ultimately taken by the group on Sunday evening with all residents forced to evacuate their homes.

“We have evacuated the village. We evacuated it this evening. Daesh [Arabic acronym for ISIS] is in our village now,” Ayub Abdullah, a villager from Liheban told Rudaw on Monday.

Abdullah explained how they were told to leave in the evening, not saying from whom the instruction came. “This evening there was no shooting, we evacuated the village. The sun hadn’t set when we were told that they were coming towards the village… God knows I fought until dawn yesterday.”

Abdullah said that his village was now calling on the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) for support. “Our village will be evacuated and will be a hub for Daesh. Now Daesh is across from me, in my village. My heart aches,” he added.

Liheban and six other villages in this area are located within territories claimed by both the Iraqi and Kurdish governments. There is a gap between the forces of the two governments, leaving villagers to fend for themselves against ISIS militants who take advantage of the security vacuum.
