(Iraq Now News)- The Peshmerga have been one of the most effective ground forces in the fight against IS over the past few years.

The Kurdish fighters stopped and repelled the advance of the jihadist group in 2014 after the Iraqi army collapsed and failed to defend the country.

Since 2014, over 1,800 Peshmerga have fallen, and 12,000 more were injured in combat, according to Peshmerga Ministry.

“We thank them very much for visiting us and giving us flowers.

We reiterate our promise to all people of the Kurdistan Region that we will protect this land from all threats,” a Peshmerga told Kurdistan 24.

“A land of coexistence with a place for every different ethnic and religious group.”

A volunteer who was distributing flowers said the purpose of the trip was to show the people’s gratitude.

“It is a very simple thing to do, but we wanted to show them that we are thankful and that their sacrifices will never be forgotten,” a volunteer told Kurdistan 24 while handing out roses.

Valentine’s Day has gained a lot of popularity among people in the Kurdistan Region in recent years.
