Kurdish militia liberated ISIS near 120 sq. Km in northern Iraq during a successful operation.


The Peshmerga command notes that a successful operation east of Mosul will allow regrouping forces and delivering new strikes from other directions. This in turn will provide an opportunity to take a strategic initiative near the city to Kurdish armed groups.

In addition to the offensive in the Mosul region, active hostilities with the participation of the peshmerga are taking place in the Al-Khazer region, also located in the territories of Iraqi Kurdistan. The positions of ISIS militants are being hit by heavy artillery, mortars, shelling is being conducted from tank guns.

Kurdish militia fighter:
After several of our attacks, the igilovtsy stopped resisting. We consider this to be an indication that the ISIL forces in the area have already been exhausted. Our victory is near.


The Iraqi Army’s operation to free the city of Fallujah from ISIS is also continuing. On the eve of the vanguard of the Iraqi armed forces involved in the operation, entered the city and hoisted the national flags of Iraq on several buildings.

      Success under Racca, according to the Star, no less
      The attack of the Syrian Democratic Forces, created by the Americans, on the Raqqah, which was widely advertised by the Western media, is developing at a slow pace, despite air support (about 150 air strikes were delivered). The fighting units of the Kurds and their allies advance south to the "capital" of the self-proclaimed caliphate, meeting fierce resistance from the enemy, they managed to free up to a dozen small settlements.

        Yes, this promoted Kurdish offensive stalled, they will "advance" for another six months for the remaining 20 km to Raqqa. It would be better if the Star and the central media more often showed that the militants were far from calming down, during the "truce", but quite the opposite. Instead of "violinists" and "piano players", bigger FABs need a ride there.

    This is a rare case when we and the Americans help one specific force at the same time. Not even to the side, but to the force - in this case, the Kurds.
    The last time this was in Yemen in the 1980's.

      The Kurds received the Jewelins from the United States without much ado. Ukraine turned out to be unworthy of them.

      we and the Americans are helping one particular power at the same time.

      The question is how this force will behave after the end of the conflict: will it choose a side or remain neutral (will it have such an opportunity).

      With such a good interaction of the Kurds with the states now, I wonder how they will behave later? Erdogan recently called on the states not to support the Kurds and the Turkish Armed Forces continue military operations against the Kurds. And the Kurds need their own country, for this they are fighting. Whichever side the states choose, they will "throw" someone in any case.

        Well, the Turks are impudent in full, and they did not give the opportunity to attack Iraq from both territories in both wars, and so on. And the Kurds have been helping the USA in everything for 30 years, as if in full. I think the choice is obvious.

    Square kilometers in such an area are not as important as settlements. It is curious how there are enough Kurds for all these offensives, if the stream of fighters doesn’t dry up from Turkey.

      In general, there are not Turkish Kurds, but their own. You at least looked at the number of Kurds in Syria.
      And especially in Iraq, where there is its own Peshmerge army, which is being trained by Turkish officers and is in the same place. They do not need Turkish Kurds.

        Syrian Kurds are very friendly with Turkish. Remember how the Turks bombed Kurdish positions in Kobani, besieged by Ishilovites and how they blocked aid from Turkish Kurds. This Iraqi Kurds led by Barzani are friends with everyone: the Turks, the Americans, and the Ishilovites.

    I always thought and still think Kurds to be great fighters.
