Islamic State thanks to retreat in Iraq

The army, supported by Kurdish fighters and Shiite militias has been steadily gaining ground to the fundamentalist Islamic State.

This Sunday, with the help of the United States, put an end to the siege in the town of Amerli Turkmen where about 15 thousand inhabitants waited two months for food and water.

Earlier in the week, Iraqi forces reconquered the city of Souleimane Bek and a nearby village of Yankaja.

So far, 12 have been identified extremists of Portuguese origin fighting in Syria and in Iraq. Men and women descended from migrant families who were recruited in the countries where they lived, such as Britain, France and Luxembourg.
