Iraqi troops have managed to launch a massive operation against a large number of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants and destroyed a convoy of at least 200 vehicles belonging to ISIL near city of Samarra, Al-Alam reports.

According to Al-Alam reporter, Iraq's elite counter-terrorism forces backed by artillery launched a massive operation on Friday evening and completely dismissed the armed militants from Samarra.

According to report, the Iraqi elite counter-terrorism forces are on their way to Mosul to restore security alongside the road connecting Ninava - Salahaddin provinces.

According to security sources, the control of Salahaddin province has been regained totally by Iraqi security troops.

I'm not sure on the veracity of these reports, but if they are true (which they seem to be, going off of the linked video), it is good to see some positive news for once. Iraq's counter-terrorism forces are allegedly making their way to Mosul, and have defeated numerous ISIS militants on the way. I expect the militants to put up a fight at Mosul, providing the special forces make it that far.

$5 says that the allies have special forces guys over there guiding them through this.

And an AC-130 or two circling above?

The whole ISIS group is a bunch of sitting ducks, imo.

The District of Columbia has trained and funded both sides. All is going according to plan, obviously. The good people of America have absolutely nothing to worry about. Just don't ask any questions and keep paying your taxes. The banksters and MIC will get through this one just fine.

200 vehicles? There isn't much evidence of 200 vehicles being destroyed in that video. I saw a few vehicles on fire or burnt out but not 200. It's good for propaganda purposes I suppose.

It looks like it's gonna be a rough ride for jihadi's in Iraq.




Around 1.5 million Iraqis have volunteered to join battles against the militants of the al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Can somebody confirm if the video shows vehicles destroyed ...on the grand scale mentioned in the title? 200?

Were those vehicles "destroyed" or did they just take a few minor hits? What about the casualties?

Also no other news channel is reporting this.

Kind of like how "35,000 Irage Army supposedly retreated in the face of 800 ISIL soldiers" on the first day?

Yeah smells like more BS to me.

I look at it like this who comprises ISIL? From what I knew of Iraqi army I dealt with we're Kurds. If ISIL is the same it would make sense for the Army to turn tail and run.

As far as Samarra goes I'm willing to bet it was Samarrans that were responsible for repelling them. They had a reputation of not taking any crap from the US soldiers. From the people I talked to there I was told it was the same with Saddam's people. They left Samarra to themselves and wouldn't mess with them.

That isn't what this says:



The ISIS have routinely practised extortion, such as demanding money from truck drivers and threatening to blow up businesses. This has been one revenue stream, while robbing banks and gold shops has been another.[56] During the battle of Mosul in June 2014, ISIS allegedly became the richest terror group in the world after looting $429 USD million from Mosul's central bank, according to the regional governor; a large quantity of gold bullion was also believed to have been stolen.[57] That will “buy a whole lot of Jihad”, regional analyst Brown Moses wrote on Twitter, adding, “For example, with $429 million, ISIS could [recruit and] pay 60,000 fighters around $600 a month for a year."[58] French television channel France 24 reported: "The group receives funding via private donations from the Gulf states."[59] In an interview with France 24,[60] Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has accused Saudi Arabia and Qatar of openly funding the ISIS.[61][62]

For those who don't worship at the alter of demagoguery.

I hope Iranian and American drones don't bump into each other as they fight a common enemy. Boots on the ground and projectile weapons are so archaic. Why use them?

The picture im seeing is the ISIL is primarily backed by Saudi Arabia being basically Sunni.Iraqi government Shia that iran wants to keep that way for their own regional dominance.
Do we have a dog in this fight? I mean im not sure whose worse but their both bad news whoever wins.

Yeah we do have a dog in this fight.

As a decade of American blood, and treasure there.

What we are witnessing is the abject failure of American foreign policy remeniscient of CLintons epic blunder of thinking it's not 'our problem', and just lob cruise missiles at them.

Failing to kill Bin Laden on multiple occasions.

A severe lack of inaction during that era.

Exacerbated by GW's severe over reaction after 9-11.

They will come for us again.

But they have been doing that for the last 6 administrations.

This is the West modern day equivalent to 'Hitler'.

They all knew who and what he was about, and everyone just stood by, and let it happen dragging us in to a world war.

Had someone taken him out ?

Totally different story.

ISIS=Hitler.

Good point! It may be that ISIL is actually making themselves vulnerable to being wiped out.

They have no official allies to protect them just massive swatches of desert.

The Iraqis, Iranians, and the US Special Forces it seems to me could wipe these barbarians out.

Of course they can wipe them out... but their cause is a noble one.

Real funny isn’t it the MIC, bankers, and their puppets like Obama and Bush always make out all right eventhough they are the major criminals in the world.

Look at that devil Wolfowitz who because of his long peddling of the Iraq war got the presidency of the World Bank after that!

They get rewarded for doing evil. And then go do more evil.

They need to be completely taken or destroyed, as they have beheaded children and they are MONSTERS.
