By Michael Georgy DEBAGA, Iraq (Reuters) - Still limping four months after an Islamic State fighter fired a bullet into his leg, teenager Mustafa Muhammed says he and his fellow Sunni tribesmen are ready to join an offensive against the militants in their stronghold of Mosul. There they will face an enemy which seized control of their lands around Mosul two years ago, and whose fighters they know as fearless and highly unpredictable.

Daesh is the Arabic acronym for Islamic State, which controls large parts of neighboring Syria and swept through northern and western Iraq in 2014.
