On Sunday morning we learned the kickoff of “Operation Wrath of the Euphrates” launched by the Arab-Kurdish forces with the support of the international coalition against the city of Raqqa, a stronghold of the organization Islamic State Syria, while the offensive against the city of Mosul, “capital” of the same organization in Iraq continues and faces strong resistance jihadists.
And on the Iraqi front
Iraq was struck Sunday morning by two suicide bombings that killed 18 and wounded 30. The attacks in the cities of Tikrit and Samarra have not yet been claimed. But the Islamic State group regularly conducts attacks within Iraq especially since he is under pressure in its last stronghold of Mosul. On Saturday, Iraqi government forces again intervened in the east and south of the second city of Iraq.
