  • Iraqi intelligence refutes reports on ISIS leader’s death

Didn't Abu Sayyaf Islamic just take over a city in the Philippines and promptly proclaim an Islamic emirate?

Iraqi security forces have ended three years of Islamic State rule in the Iraqi city of Mosul, and the group is under growing pressure in Raqqa - both strongholds in the militants' crumbling self-proclaimed caliphate.

Russia claimed to have killed Baghdadi during an air strike in May, but has yet to provide any proof. Within 10 minutes of the race, the body starts burning calories. Their defeat diminishes the inspiration for violent extremists, or simply lost souls on social media, to attack Americans and our friends. "The younger generation is always more dangerous". Americans are safer for it.

Bukamal (also known as Abu Kamal): This town on the Iraqi border is the southeasternmost of the Euphrates valley towns in Deir al-Zour province.

"(We have) confirmed information from leaders, including one of the first rank, in [Isis territory] in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor", Rami Abdulrahman, the director of the British-based war monitoring group, told Reuters on Tuesday. He was hiding from security services.

Mr Talabany added it would be difficult to know which Al-Baghdadi aides were still alive, but he believed most of them were somewhere south of Raqqa.

"If we knew, we would tell you - right now, I can't confirm or deny it", Mattis said.

Trump lawyer: Nothing illegal in son's Russia meeting
ELEANOR BEARDSLEY, BYLINE: The Bastille Day parade was the crowning event in a two-day visit packed with pomp and ceremony. A conservative writer said a couple weeks ago that the Trump administration is afflicted with Russian amnesia.

History has shown this task is difficult for outsiders to accomplish.

The government of Iraq and the coalition dealt ISIS a blow the week, retaking the city of Mosul. It noted that it was in the process of confirming the information through various channels. "There will certainly be alternatives that will be put forward by its [foreign state] backers", Boroumandi concluded. "And I think they would implement it". Among the most important decisions that the Trump administration has made was approving the provision of arms and training to Kurdish elements of the Syrian Democratic Forces to lay siege to Raqqa. Raqqa was once considered the group's de-facto capital.

There have also been no announcements from ISIS and no communications have been intercepted indicating he is dead.

"We will continue until the end", assured Jim Mattis.

The U.S. -led anti-ISIS coalition met in Washington, D.C. this week.

Islamic State is an offshoot of the Iraqi branch of al-Qaida, which in 2014 united with part of the Syrian branch.

Then came the last phase of the Islamic state - for the first time, a brutal Islamic terrorist organization bent on implementing Shari'a to the maximum had taken over vast territories in Iraq and Syria where some three million people lived. But for now let's thank our troops and their commanders.
