Iraq Kurds deliver aid to Mt. Sinjar, expand operation


MOUNT SINJAR, Iraq: Kurdish peshmerga forces delivered aid on Mount Sinjar and expanded a major offensive against jihadist-held areas in northwestern Iraq on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) after breaking a months-old siege. The peshmerga closed in on Sinjar town south of the mountain and Tal Afar to its east. If successful, the move would significantly alter the map of the Islamic State group’s self-declared cross-border “caliphate” and isolate its Mosul hub.
