Iraq Divided: The Fight Against ISIL

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.

As the U.S. strikes Islamic State targets, Fault Lines reports from northern Iraq on the consequences of the latest American intervention. (new, 30 minutes)

Airing Saturday, October 18, at 7 pm Eastern time/4 pm Pacific on Al Jazeera America.
