Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters guard a post bearing an image of  jailed PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan as they fight in an intensive security deployment against Islamic State (IS) militants in the town of Makhmur, southwest Arbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq, on August 21, 2014.
