ISIS is finally defeated in Mosul.It took three years for that.

 

http://www.bbc.com/n...e-east-37702442

 

 

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally declared victory over IS in the city on 10 July.

He waved a national flag with troops after announcing the "collapse of the terrorist state of falsehood".

Only hours earlier, clashes were still being reported in a small part of Old City, where a few dozen IS militants were still holding out.

 

 

IS forces were pushed back into the Old City, which is a densely built-up area interconnected by small alleyways, after being encircled by pro-Iraqi government forces in the western half of Mosul.

Hundreds of thousands of civilians have fled the city, much of which has sustained heavy damage during the eight-month offensive.

 

 

Their capital city in Syria,Raqqa,is also surrounded and they will lose  it soon hopefully. Soon their coventional forces in Syria and Iraq will be defeated. But they will continue with classic terrorism(car bombs,suicide attacks)in both Middle East and around the world. But it is still an importand milestone in defeating them.

This IS (pardon the pun) good new! Great job to our forces over there. Nice to see what they can do without the PC restrictions. Keep killing those goat f*ckers you guys!



It will be a long road ahead. And don't forget Iran is playing around in there as well.

The majority of fighting has been done by Middle Eastern government forces and the Kurds, you racist sludge pile.

Keep the derogatory language to a minimum please. I can't believe I have to say that in a place like D&D.

ISIS lost another battle now when siege of Deir-Ez-Zor is broken by SAA. With YPG surrounding Raqqa there is good chance that ISIS will be done as conventional force in Syria and Iraq by end of this year. Still probably gonna continue with guerilla and terror attacks.But for now at least some 70.000 civilians in Deir-Ez-Zor are safe from further suffering by ISIS siege.

The Syrian army has managed to break an Isis siege on the eastern town of Deir Ezzor for the first time since the militants surrounded it three years ago, Syrian state TV has said.

Activists and UK-based war monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) confirmed that government troops and their allies had reached the western outskirts of the city amid fierce fighting on Tuesday.

Isis’s defences collapsed, SOHR said, allowing the army to dismantle the mines around the besieged Brigade 137 airbase, allowing besieged troops and advancing forces to reunite. 

 

 

Forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have made steady gains on the jihadi militants’ desert position for several months with help from Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Russian air support. In the past few days, the pace at which the Syrian army has retaken territory has increased rapidly. 

The army command said in a statement that reaching Deir Ezour marks "a strategic turn in the war against terrorism", and that the city will be used as a "launching pad to expand military operations in the region". 

The offensive is being led by General Suheil al-Hassan, who is known as the Tiger.

The wusses are stranded in the middle of nowhere with no way to "escape". https://www.nytimes....oy.html?mcubz=0

 

Call me heartless, but had they didn't bring their families with them, I would've cried for an airstrike that finishes them all. Better yet, have someone lock 'em up and give them a taste of their own medicine. You destroyed Syria, you murdered innocents in the name of our religion, you're a disgrace to Islam, Muslims, Arabs and Humanity, in that order. Good riddance.

Former Yemen's president Ali Abdullah Saleh has been killed by Houthis. He danced on the heads of snakes, played all sides, backed the Houthis, waged war on the Houthis, worked for US interests, worked for Iran interests. Worked against US interests, helped al Qaeda, killed al Qaeda. Killed a lot of Yemenis. Quite a life.

His death is definitely a turning point in Yemen's history. But for now, it changes nothing for the millions of people suffering in the worst possible ways you could ever imagine across the country. Saleh's dead but the war continues and is far from over.

That is a new development of situation ,unfortunately for that country it won't change much. At this point he was just one of numerous factions in Yemen,and war that involve also a lot of foreign intrests will continue,and also suffering and malnutrition of civilians.

The Iraqi prime minister has declared that the battle against ISIS is finally over, and they have at last been driven out of their land:

https://www.theguard...t-islamic-state

This is fantastic news. And hopefully means that the Iraqi people can finally enjoy some measure of peace. Though I can't help but wonder how al Baghdadi hasn't been captured or killed yet.

It would still be hard for Iraqis to live though. Their government is as strict as a clan of mushrooms and people are - sadly - affected by ISIS, so they can't live a normal life in at least a lifetime.

 

 

 

I miss Saddam. As much of a P.o.S dictator he was, the country was at least in order. Iraq wouldn't have been like this if he stayed.

Protests in Iran are still going on and its interesting to see if anything comes of it like Egypt from a few years ago.
