As the U.S. strikes Islamic State targets in northern Iraq, Fault Lines travels to Irbil to examine the consequences of the latest U.S. intervention.
As the U.S. steps up its air campaign against the Islamic State, Fault Lines travels 600 miles across Iraq to look at the consequences of the fight against ISIL.
While Kurdish fighters and Shia militias battle ISIL, we find that they are facing their own accusations of human rights abuses, including ethnic cleansing.
The attack on ISIL has created unlikely alliances. But as each group pursues its own interests, they are threatening to unravel Iraq and divide the country more than ever.
