Iraq launches major anti-Daesh offensive

  • Dubbed “Vengeance for the Martyrs,” the operation will see the army, special forces, police and Kurdish peshmerga fighters hunting down Daesh cells in the center of the country.
  • The operation marked the first time that federal Iraqi forces and the peshmerga were working together since clashes following last year’s Kurdish independence referendum.
