IS in Iraq losing terrain 'every single day': US general

Iraqi Kurdish and Turkmen Shiite forces from the Popular Mobilisation units sit on top of a tank on May 1, 2016 in the northern Iraqi town of al-Bashir after they recaptured the town from the control of the Islamic State (IS) groupThe Islamic State group is losing ground in Iraq, struggling to replenish its ranks after it is attacked and is increasingly unable to mount major operations, a US general said Wednesday. Baghdad-based Major General Gary Volesky said efforts are paying off for US-backed Iraqi security forces, who are trying to recapture vast tracts of territory seized by IS jihadists in 2014, including the key cities of Mosul and Fallujah in the Anbar and Nineveh provinces. In August 2014, the United States launched an international coalition to fight back against the IS group after they captured large parts of Syria and Iraq.
