With all of the talk about domestic issues and Russian conspiracies, the fact remains that there are still terrorists who want to kill Americans.
Our Armed Forces and allies haven’t forgotten that fact. And thank goodness, because a military strike just took out an important ISIS leader!
Via the New York Daily News:
Iraqi government forces killed the Islamic State commander of Mosul’s Old City on Tuesday as the battle for the militants’ last stronghold in Iraq focused on a bridge crossing the Tigris river.
Federal police killed the military commander of the Old City, Abu Abdul Rahman al-Ansary, during operations to clear Bab al-Tob district, a federal police officer said. With many IS leaders having already retreated from Mosul, Ansary’s death comes as blow to the militants as they defend their shrinking area of control street-by-street and house-by-house.
That this attack occurred in Mosul is great news. The city is a major ISIS stronghold in Iraq, and the U.S. is helping the Iraqis get it all back.
If you think is great news, be sure to share it with others!
