In this Thursday Jan. 29, 2015 photo, a Kurdish peshmerga fighter fires a weapon towards an Islamic State Group position 500 meters, or half a mile away,  overlooking the town of Sinjar northern Iraq. Kurdish forces in recent weeks have retaken parts of the strategic Iraqi town of Sinjar, whose Yazidi population was driven out in a humanitarian disaster last year that triggered U.S. intervention. But disagreements among Kurdish factions makes the hold on the town seem shaky and is threatening the wider fight against Islamic state militants. (AP Photo/Bram Janssen)
