The Bundeswehr in Action: Is the Strategy for Afghanistan working?
Multiple high-level military leaders of the "Islamic State" militia have been killed by US airstrikes in northern Iraq. The most significant figure killed was a deputy to the leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
It has been deemed 'the most successful' offensive to date against the "Islamic State." Kurdish forces announced Thursday they have broken the siege on Mount Sinjar and recaptured territory in a two-day assault.
