On Jan 25th an Islamic State militant beheaded one of the 30 Peshmerga officers who were kidnapped near Mosul at the start of the IS offensive on the city over six months ago.


BasNews can confirm the Peshmerga officer is Hujam Surchi from Bardasor village near Bardarash, a town in the south east of Duhok province in the Kurdistan Region.

The 30 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have been held by IS for six months, after they were captured in Mosul last June. The officers lost their way when returning to Kurdistan Region borders from a clandestine mission in the city. They were caught in an IS ambush.

BasNews has also identified the Kurdish IS militant who beheaded the Peshmerga officer in a video released on Sunday.


The killer, who wore traditional Kurdish clothes, is Mofaq Asa’ad Askandar, a member of the Kurdish Zebari tribe.

BasNews understands that when Islamic State captured Mosul in June 2014, Askandar and his two brothers travelled to the city and joined the militants.

Previously, they were bakers in Bardarash and members of a Kurdish Islamic party.


During the Zumar Operation in October, Peshmerga forces killed one of Askandar’s brothers, Halmat. Halmat was the IS Emir of the area.

Colonel Bahram Doski, commander of Peshmerga forces on the Sinjar frontline, told BasNews that they killed another of his brothers during clashes with IS militants in the town.

Furthermore, another of Askandar’s brother by the the name of “Abu Obed” seriously injured as a result of US-led coalition forces near Sinjar.

An Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga commander has said that in the Tuesday clashes in the Nawaran and Bashiqa areas north west of Mosul, two Kurdish Islamic State leaders, or Emirs, were killed.

Ghayas Surchi, spokesman for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) office in Mosul, told BasNews that in the last 48 hours Islamic State at the Nawaran and Bashiqa frontlines attacked Kurdish Peshmerga forces, resulting in the death of 32 IS militants, some of them Kurds.

“Two of the dead were Kurdish militants. One is named Haji Yahiya Fazil and was the IS Nawaran Emir,”
said Surchi.

Fazil was killed in clashes along with two of his cousins, also IS fighters.

“In Bashiqa another IS Kurdish Emir, leading the fighting, was killed and one of his brothers wounded. He was called Mussa Asa’ad,” added Surchi.
