ISIS Muslim terrorists invaded a Christian town in Iraq, slaughtering and tyrannizing the Christians there. Just recently, Christian warriors entered the town and are now fighting to liberate it. Here is the report:
On the road to Mosul, Iraqi-led forces have besieged a Christian town in an attempt to liberate it from ISIS control, but they are facing fierce resistance and exchanging heavy gunfire with militants, a paramilitary general told CNN.
Iraqi security forces, Peshmerga fighters and a Christian paramilitary group have forced ISIS fighters into the center of Qaraqosh, where airstrikes are pounding the militants, in apparent coalition support of the assault, Gen. Amr Shamoun from the Christian militia group said.
It’s the latest clash with ISIS militants in the coalition’s aggressive push toward Mosul aimed at unshackling the strategic city from the terror group’s brutal control.
The operation has been complicated since ISIS apparently brought civilians into Qaraqosh, which was abandoned after militants took over in 2014.
Part of Qaraqosh has already been liberated, Shamoun said.
Qaraqosh is just one town coalition forces are trying to liberate. The Iraqi army’s armored division is closing in on Mosul’s fringes after sweeping through enemy-controlled land in two days, freeing communities village by village, the division’s commander told CNN on Wednesday.
