Talk about putting yourself in harm’s way… Ross Kemp and his camera team dodge a sniper’s bullets in a forward position as they follow the Kurdish advance against Isis in Iraq and northern Syria. This area, between the Tigris and Euphrates, is supposed to be the “cradle of civilisation”, but it’s now a wasteland, with towns flattened: In Iraq, Kemp stares around blankly at the “post-Armageddon” remains of Sinjar, with booby traps still in place in the bombed-out shells of churches. And the human cost is appalling: one clearly shell-shocked Kurdish woman describes bluntly how her children were either kidnapped or killed; and Kemp sees the results of one mass killing, which brings him close to tears.
