… from Press TV,  Tehran

[ Editor’s Note: Iraq has shown time and time again that it can get good Intel on these ISIS military pow wow so they can seen them a present by F-16 special delivery. I have a suspicion that the US has been helping them all along with it intercept capacity withing the adviser poll on station there.

Such strike also sew dissension in the Daesh ranks over fear of a traitor feeding the meeting locations for what I must assume would be a nice reward if one could live long enough to collect it.

We will have to wait and see when the Mosul advance cranks up how Turkey handles the retreating jihadis looking for safe have through the Turkish border... Jim W. Dean

More than a dozen commanders of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group have been killed when Iraqi fighter jets carried out a precision strike in Iraq’s troubled northern province of Nineveh.

The Iraqi Joint Operations Command announced in a statement on Saturday that the military aircraft struck a militant gathering in al-Sahel al-Aysar region, which lies east of the militant-held city of Mosul, leaving 19 senior Daesh figures dead, Arabic-language al-Baghdadia television reported.

The statement added that self-proclaimed Daesh governor Ayad Hamed Mohal al-Jumail, better known by the nom de guerre Abu Yahya, was among those killed in the aerial attack.

Hundreds of Iraqi families continue to flee southern Mosul as army soldiers and fighters from Popular Mobilization Units are taking up positions around the city.

Hisham al-Hashimi, a consultant to the Baghdad government on the anti-Daesh campaign, said the offensive for the liberation of Mosul was slated for late September.

Defense Minister Khalid al-Obeidi recently said high-ranking Daesh militant commanders and their families had sold their belongings and fled Mosul as Iraqi forces were closing in on the city.

Mosul fell into the hands of the Takfiri terrorists in June 2014, when they began a large-scale offensive in Iraq.

On Friday, Iraqi security forces managed to wrest control over Khalidiya Island river peninsula, located nearly 90 kilometers west of the capital, Baghdad, in the western province of Anbar.

The achievement came only a few hours after Iraqi government soldiers retook al-Kartan region from Daesh extremists, and purged the terrorists from Albu Kan’an district in the same province.

The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by gruesome violence ever since Daesh terrorists mounted an offensive in June 2014.

The Iraqi army and fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units have been engaged in joint operations to retake militant-held regions.

    Monty, Would the Chinese Army fit the description forseen by the Prophet Muhammad? If so they just walked through the door, and are now in Syria. Just in the nick of time.

    One Major development that I’ve been waiting to SURELY occur, with the ‘Signs of End of Times’ of oppression finally being defeated globally, mentioned by The Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUHP) fourteen centuries ago is the coming of a civilisation of powerful people for the first time onto Muslim Lands who will be short with sleet eyes that had never before set foot, as a power. Their coming and joining with the the Forces of Truth will be the start of a chain of reactions which would finally create the Divine God to order the Re-Appearance of the Mahdi (AF) onto the earth to establish Universal Peace And Justice For All Creations… (Armageddom is a zionist will to create what they stand for- deaths and destructions)
    Loads of the Signs of End of Times have become possible with man’s greed for himself, at the cost of his own downfall.Loads of the Signs of End of Times have become possible with man’s greed for himself, at the cost of his own downfall.

      Loads of the Signs of End of Times have become possible with man’s greed for himself, at the cost of his own downfall.

      Some of the other signs that were to happen BEFORE the sleet eyed people stepped onto Muslim Lands// Syria burning,,, Khorasan Army already at battle ready mode,,, Jerusalem ruled with traitors having sold/given up Muslim Rule,,, Iraq being tossed by double crossers from within,,, Yemenis finally rising up for their Rights having been oppressed for a long time by their big neighbour rulers who would profess being Muslims but far from it,,,.

      These are to follow with the coming of the DAJJAL (one eyed, promising heaven but creating hell on earth; who’s feet will be under the sea and raised arms will reach the skies; who’ll promise and feed his supporters & starve his enemies to an extent that he’ll half-chew food that he doesn’t want so that nobody from his enemies will get to even have a grain.)

      Theologians have been having a debate these past Atleast three decades that ALL the signs of the Dajjal fit in with US Government perfectly. It’s only a matter of time that one of the Grand Ayatullahs proclaims a Fatwa that USG Is The Dajjal (Anti-Christ) with All it’s actions globally all proving of the Anti-Christ already being amidst humanity…
