The boy, known only as Omer, repairs firearms for his father’s business ready for use on the frontline..
The youngster, who is in Year 6 of primary school, sometimes works alongside his dad for 24 hours, day and night, and can help to repair anything from heavy machine guns to sniper rifles.
I work with my father daily, I help him. We repair DShKs (heavy machine guns). Daesh (Islamic State) came here, I want to help the Peshmerga. I do not want Daesh to control Kurdistan.Advertisement
