A Peshmerga fighter looks at at smoke rising in the horizon on the front line of fighting with Islamic State militants 20 kilometers east of Mosul, on August 18, 2014. Kurdish peshmerga fighters backed by federal forces and U.S. warplanes pressed a counter-offensive Monday against jihadists after retaking Iraq's largest dam, as the United States and Britain stepped up their military involvement.
