Iraqi Kurds fought back Islamists from a city in Diyala province

"Peshmerga forces regained control of the city of Jalaula in the Iraqi province of Diyala- said the Kurdish commander Ahmad Latif. - And also captured the neighborhood of the city of Thadjid, which is the IG stronghold in this region. The terrorist group is retreating with great losses. ”

According to him, aid to the Kurds was provided by air strikes inflicted by the international coalition.

Jalaula is located in 115 km from Baghdad and in 70-ti from the center of Baakuba province. The settlement has been in the hands of the Islamists since June of this year. By security forces he was left without a fight.

Earlier, the United States declared "visible results" achieved in the fight against IS, however, the coalition countries are still far from their ultimate goal - the complete destruction of the radical group.

    I think the Kurds will not be allowed to crush the IG - not for that, the state employees invested in Islamists to destroy them later, and those airstrikes are to remind WHO
