FILE - In this Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015 file photo, a Kurdish peshmerga fighter pauses during an operation to retake the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar. In the shadow of the buildup to the long-awaited Mosul offensive, Kurdish forces are seizing additional territory that they say will become part of their semiautonomous region.
