Peshmarga forces had started advancement toward Sinjar days earlier and had managed to free 30 villages in the area.
After gaining control over Zomar, they had started moving toward Sinjar and Rabia.
The first axis had started moving from north to south from Dahuk.
The village used to be a very hard obstacle against peshmarga advancement.
The second axis had started moving from east to west, where peshmarga moved from Dahuk to the Zomar area and then Sinjar.
The operations began on Wednesday and Isil was forced back, so much that they had been forced to go as back as Tal Afar and Mosul.
One of the main gains of the operation was retaking the strategic road connecting Mosul to Zomar to Rabia and then heading to the Syrian border where it reached Raqqa.
The peshmarga control over Sinjar cut Isil’s contact with fellows in Syria and as a result, prevented the flow of aids they received from them.
