A Kurdish peshmerga soldier prays at a battle field in Mahmoudiyah, Iraq, where Kurdish fighters took control from the Islamic State group on Tuesday, as they patrol in the northern village on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014. Iraqi Kurdish fighters on the front lines of battle say they have yet to receive the heavy weapons and training pledged by the United States and nearly a dozen other countries to help them push back the Sunni militants. Without more sophisticated weaponry, the Kurdish fighters, known as peshmerga, have had to rely on aging arms like the Soviet-era cannons, a centerpiece of the offensive Tuesday to retake Mahmoudiyah.
