Mustafa Said, a cameraman for Kurdistan TV, a satellite television channel owned by the Kurdistan Democratic Party (PDK), was killed on Aug. 14, 2016 during a military operation against the Islamic State group in northern Iraq. His colleague, correspondent Hayman Nanqli, was seriously wounded in the attack. Said’s death occurred during a major offensive launched by Kurdish forces near the Islamic State group’s stronghold of Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad. He was reportedly killed by a mortar round fired into a village recently taken by the Peshmerga. The journalists were embedded with Peshmerga forces involved in the operation southeast of Mosul.
