Kurdish forces discovered a network of tunnels buried deep underground after recapturing the town of Sinjar for ISIS.

Hidden beneath the streets and shattered buildings, ISIS militants dug the tunnels, wired with electricity and reinforced it with sandbags, to protect themselves from coalition air strikes and prepare defenses against the Kurdish attacks.

More than 70 tunnels were discovered, many containing ammunition, medicine and bombs.

90 bombs were found in one tunnel.
