Obama Announces bombing and humanitarian aid in Iraq

The United States will press ahead with aerial bombardments in northern Iraq to protect American citizens and infrastructures. The announcement was delivered by the President of the United States of Americans having moments later dropped humanitarian aid by air in the region.

Obama excludes all the mobilization of troops on the ground. "Today I have authorized two operations in Iraq. First, specific bombing to protect American personnel; Second, a humanitarian operation to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water, at the mercy of death. When faced with a situation like this, with innocents against a backdrop of violence in a horrific scale, when we have a warrant for help â€" in this case a request for help from Iraqi Government-and when we have unique capabilities to prevent a massacre, so I believe that the United States of America cannot turn a blind eye, said Obama.

The humanitarian crisis in northern Iraq is deteriorating after the exodus to the mountains of 50 thousand Yazidi Kurds, a people of Kurdish ethnicity, a follower of Zoroastrianism.

The guerrillas of the Islamic State have captured another Iraqi locale. Qaraqosh fell after withdrawal from the Kurdish army. The Islamic State has gained ground in Iraq since June.
