He says:

You see this area? I guarantee to God no one would come up it. I’m relaxed. My mind is relaxed.

When I get my rotation I just want to get back here. Last time they gave me a month off and after 12 days I came back.

According to Mr Tasheen his rifle is capable of blowing a man a metre back when they’re struck by the bullet.

He also claims that he’s so accurate that ISIS fighters have become afraid to walk through the mountains in case he should spot them and take them out.

Mr Tasheen is just one of many volunteer fighters many of whom fought ISIS in Syria but returned to defend Iraq when the group gained a foothold in Iraq.
