The Soldiers of Sinjar

Portraits of various men from Sinjar villages in Iraq who’ve banded together to combat the growing threat posed by ISIS. Consisting of a mix of Yazidis, Muslims and Christians, they fight to protect the Sinjar region. (Photos: Andrew Quilty)

The men at the training camp wear matching uniforms and carry various incarnations of Kalashnikov rifles. Sinjari himself, however, is never without his U.S. military standard-issue M4 carbine, which he says was first given to then-Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s army by the United States before being captured by the Islamic State in the group’s mid-June advance, until he himself wrested it away from an IS fighter, he says with a wry smile.
