Macrosnap of ISIS in Iraq?

  • ISIS (a Sunni extremist group) occupies the western chunk of Iraq - 8 months ago they took Mosul (Iraq's 2nd largest city).
  • Since then, Iraq army + US (small number of troops) have struggled to make gains.
  • Shia forces (loyal to Shia-dominated Bagdad government) + Kurdish forces (in NW) have retaken territory populated by their own sects, but limited gains in Sunni areas.
