Iraq's Christians train to recapture homesWith wooden crosses around their necks and others tattooed on their arms, several dozen Iraqi Christians are training to recapture their homes overrun by ISIS militants.A year ago, ISIS launched a fierce offensive in northern Iraq, quickly capturing second city Mosul with its large Christian minority, and Christian-populated areas in the surrounding Nineveh province.Samir is from Baghdad, but most of the Christians in the "Babylon Battalions" unit are from Mosul.According to Kaldani, the Christians fight under the command of Abu Mahdi al-Mohandis, one of the top commanders in the "Popular Mobilization" forces, an umbrella organization mainly made up of Shiite fighters.The volunteers say Mosul is the main goal, but their fight is not limited to that city.
