Tens of thousands of religious minorities feld to the safety of Kurdish-held areas. Before the U.S. airstrikes, there was panic-buying at the gun bazaar. Kurdish men madly snapped up any weapons on offer, fearing the Islamic State fighters would roll into Irbil. “They didn’t even ask for the price, They just said, ‘Please give me a gun,'” recalled dealer Alan Aly, 36, his eyes widening. “This never happened before,” added Aly, who like the other merchants sported an expensive Japanese gold watch.
