While the fight to take back Mosul took soldiers 9 months,and only a few fighters surrendered, Tal-Afar was just 11 days, and more than 500 fighters surrendered. The extremist were ousted from Hawija in just 15 days, and the ISIS fighters did not put in any fight at all, they only planted bombs and booby traps, and after heavy fighting, the group members took their family members and ran.

Many fighters are claiming to be just cooks and clerks for the group, while some claimed to have just joined the group in the past 2 months. Many of the fighters claimed never to have seen a beheading or anything close to it.

In a monitored interview, one of the fighters ,Maytham Muhammed Mohemin said that he had joined the group because he believed their cause, and because his brother had joined. He also said he was getting paid a $100, which is better than nothing at the time.

Maytham had been fighting with the group for 2 years. He had arrived Dibis at Tuesday afternoon with eight other people, after they had gone to Hawija to drop their weapons. Two weeks before that, Maytham had been hiding in holes to escape the never ending American bombs and shelling of the Iraqi forces, and while hiding in holes, the group had no food or sanitary facilities, hence, they stink.

ISIS has killed 18 fighters of its group after they were accused of texting the Kurdish army on plans to surrender. The group, which is known for killing any of its members that are accused of either betraying the group or are seen as ineffective in an ongoing battle.

The militants killed are mostly Arabs that had joined only when the sect took the town of peshmerga. Since the Kurdish army are gaining control of the area, the militants are now surrendering back to the Kurdish army and more than 10 militants have surrendered.


In December 2014, ISIS had killed more than 200 of its own fighters after they tried running away from the battlefield. Also in January, another 56 ISIS members were killed after they were defeated in a battle in Kober, Northern Iraq. This was after 300 members were killed in peshmerga south of Erbil.
