On the 20th February, I went to Shingal. The Peshmergas came to pick me up in Duhok so I wouldn’t have to travel alone as it isn’t still completely safe. The way takes about 3 hours from the city of Duhok. During my whole stay in Shingal I was accompanied by at least four Kurdish soldiers. Mr. Kasem Schacho welcomed me personally, he is the commandant of Shingal Peshmergas. They are very brave soldiers, many thanks to them for their protection.
