While 100s of Kurdish youth are leaving the Kurdistan Region, Diyar Uthman did the opposite. In this interview Diyar Uthman tells us what made him leave the safety of Australia to work with the Peshmega forces in their fight against IS.

Diyar returned to Kurdistan just before the invasion of IS in Iraq and the group's threat to the Kurdistan region. He later decided to stay and work on the frontlines with Peshmerga forces, as their communicator with the Coalition forces.
