ISIS burn oil wells as Kurds attack

U.S. airstrikes and international shipments of arms have "helped the Kurds claw back some ground" captured by a June offensive by radical Islamic jihadists in northern Iraq," according to the report.


Jeremiah decreed that the cities of Iraq would be set on fire as one of nine judgments on the land of Babylon. Will the counter-offensive by Kurdish forces ignite the fires?
