A Peshmerga fighter looks at at smoke rising in the distance on the front line of fighting with Islamic State (IS) militants east of Mosul, on August 18, 201American warplanes have bombed Islamist militants in northern Iraq near the Mosul dam, the US military's Central Command said on Thursday, in the latest air attack on the extremists. "US military forces continued to attack ISIL (Islamic State) terrorists in support of Iraqi Security Force operations, using fighter and attack aircraft to conduct six airstrikes in the vicinity of the Mosul Dam," it said in a statement. The air raids were carried out over the last 24 hours, a US defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP. The air attacks come after President Barack Obama called for decisive international action against the "cancer" of jihadist extremism in Iraq and Syria.

PKK fighters participate in an intensive security deployment against Islamic State militants in MakhmurBy Isabel Coles MAKHMUR Iraq (Reuters) - Washington has acquired an unlikely ally in its battle against Islamic State militants in Iraq - a group of fighters it formally classifies as terrorists. The outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), condemned for its three-decade insurgency against the Turkish state, says it played a decisive role in blunting the militants' sweep through Iraq, which triggered U.S. "This war will continue until we finish off the Islamic State," said Rojhat, a PKK fighter speaking from a hospital bed in Arbil, the capital of the Kurdish region in Iraq. The involvement of the PKK has consequences not only for rival Kurdish factions who failed to stop the Islamic State's advance, but also for Turkey and the international community, which is being lobbied by the PKK to drop the terrorist tag.
