Iraqi army freed the city of terror from terrorists


“Last week, in the valley of the Euphrates River, Iraqi security forces pulled Heath out of the hands of ISIS and returned it to the Iraqi people. The hit is released, ”Warren said on Thursday.

According to him, "the Iraqi army, the country's anti-terrorist service and the local Sunni militia worked in good coordination."

Also last week, "Iraqi forces managed to repel several serious attacks in the valley of the Tigris River," added Warren.

Heath was captured by terrorists in October 2014.

Referring to the situation in Syria, Warren reported on the offensive battles of opposition groups trying to cut the message of the IG militants with Turkey in the north-east of the country.

“Fights are taking place near the city of Manbij. This area is strategically important because its seizure will cut the last line of communication between the Islamic State in Syria and Turkey, ”he specified.

At the same time, in the area of ​​the battles “a very changeable and dynamic picture remains,” said Warren.

"We will continue to put pressure on the IG, but we expect that they will fight hard to try to hold their positions," he concluded.

      Amazing The representative of the US command Steve Warren calmly reports that Turkey supports, but actually fights on the side of ISIS.

      Those. NATO countries are actually at war with each other, supporting ISIS on the one hand, and the Kurds and the "opposition" on the other. Am I missing something or has the world gone crazy?

        No, it’s such a tradition in them that they’re not embarrassed to support both sides of the conflict so that they can fight longer ...

      "Barmaley" will not end as long as there is a "triumvirate" - the United States, the United Arab Emirates + CA, Turkey.
      And here’s the new one from DAISH:

    I look forward to the US statements that this happened with their support. As usual, they will become attached to victory, although it rather happened in spite of their "help"

    Well, just like children))) Warren literally confirmed the direct relationship between the Islamic State and Turkey.

    Yes, that is exactly what it will be: on the one hand, they will “press”, on the other hand, they will maintain their “expectations”, because it is necessary that IS hold its positions as long as possible ...
