    New Kurdish offensive targets ISIS

    Thank God for the Kurds. They seem to be the only ones who know how to fight, and are willing to do it. If not for them, we’d be nowhere in Iraq. As it stands, the Kurds are at least taking back territory from ISIL.

    Iraqi Kurdish forces launched a new offensive Wednesday targeting Islamic State group extremists as a suicide bomber killed at least five people in the Kurds’ regional capital.

    The operation came as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said details haven’t been finalized for a deal that would have his country train rebels to battle IS in Syria, where the militants also hold territory

    A U.S.-led coalition is targeting IS with airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, supporting Western-backed Syrian rebels, Kurdish fighters and the Iraqi military on the ground. The strikes have helped halt the extremists’ move to take the Syrian city of Kobani near the Turkish border, and enabled Iraqi forces to make key advances. On Tuesday, the Kurds captured six IS-controlled buildings in Kobani and confiscated a large amount of weapons and ammunition, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

    In Iraq, the new offensive by Kurdish forces, known as the peshmerga, targeted areas in Diyala and Kirkuk provinces, said Jaber Yawer, a peshmerga spokesman. The IS extremists had seized the territory in their August offensive that saw them capture a third of Iraq.
