Iraq War : military Shows No Mercy Syria's war: Kurdish forces 2 days ago   04:35

In response to rapid territorial gains made by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) during the first half of 2014, and its universally-condemned executions, reported human rights abuses and the fear of further spillovers of the Syrian Civil War, many states began to intervene against it in both the Syrian Civil War and the Iraqi Civil War.[266] Later, there were also minor interventions by some states against ISIL-affiliated groups in Nigeria and Libya.In mid-June 2014, Iran, according to American and British information, started flying drones over Iraq, and, according to Reuters, Iranian soldiers were in Iraq fighting ISIL. Simultaneously, the United States ordered a small number of troops to Iraq and started flying crewed aircraft over Iraq.

In July 2014, according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, Iran sent Sukhoi Su-25 aircraft to Iraq, and Hezbollah purportedly sent trainers and advisers to Iraq to monitor ISIL's movements. In August 2014, the US and Iran separately began a campaign of airstrikes on ISIL targets in Iraq. Since then, fourteen countries in a US-led coalition have also executed airstrikes on ISIL in Iraq and in Syria.

In September 2015, Russian forces, with the permission of the Syrian government, began thousands of bombing raids against ISIL, al-Nusra Front, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

In the months following the beginning of both air campaigns, ISIL began to lose ground in both Iraq and Syria.Civilian deaths from airstrikes began to mount in 2015 and 2016.[ In mid-2016, the US and Russia planned to begin coordinating their airstrikes; however, this coordination did not materialize.

As of December 2017, ISIL was estimated to control no territory in Iraq, and 5% of Syrian territory, after prolonged actions.On 9 December 2017, Iraq declared victory in the fight against ISIL and stated that the war in Iraq was over. On 23 March 2019, ISIL was completely defeated territorially in Syria after losing the Battle of Baghuz Fawqani

Syria's war: Kurdish forces Iraq War : military Shows No Mercy 2 days ago   02:19

In Syria, US-backed Kurdish forces are continuing to slowly pull back from positions near the Turkish border.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to send troops in to push out the YPG if they didn't move.
But some people in northeastern Syria who have enjoyed relative peace since Kurdish forces pushed back the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) group are worried about what the pull-back means for their safety.
Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from Antakya near the Turkey-Syria border.
