The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

Kur­dis­tan Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani vis­ited Pesh­merga front­lines dur­ing the Newroz cel­e­bra­tions and an­nounced that the Kur­dish forces are fight­ing with a new strat­egy.

On the first day of Newroz on Satur­day, Bar- zani vis­ited the fam­ily of the mar­tyred Pesh­merga fighter Hu­jam Surchi, who was re­cently be­headed by the Is­lamic State bar­bar­ians.

"I con­sid­ered it nec­es­sary to visit you be­cause I am not able to visit each martyr's fam­i­lies. I want- ed to com­mem­o­rate Newroz with you," Barzani told the fam­ily.

Barzani wanted to as­sure the fam­i­lies of the mar­tyred Pesh­merga fighters that his thoughts are with them.

"Mar­tyrs' fam­i­lies should be proud since mar­tyr­dom can­not be gained by ev­ery­one. Martyr Hu­jam Surchi is the sym­bol of de­fense for Kur­dish Pesh­merga fighters. He will stay in our hearts for­ever."

In the same day, Barzani vis­ited Kur­dish Pesh­merga Forces at the front­lines to closely ob­serve the sit­u­a­tion.

Dur­ing the meet­ings, the Pesh­merga com­man­ders gave the Pres­i­dent de­tailed in­for­ma­tion about Pesh­merga plans and prepa­ra­tions to de­feat the IS.

Barzani ad­vised the Pesh­merga and the se­cu­rity forces not to mis­treat the en­emy's dead bod­ies. He also re­it­er­ated his com­mit­ment to pro­tect­ing Kur­dis­tan and the Kur­dish flag from any threat from any­one.
