In the video below, Kurdish Special Forces fight ISIS in Kirkuk. As Iraqi security forces launched the Mosul offensive, ISIS countered by attacking several locations within Kirkuk. According to the Wall Street Journal, ISIS is losing Sunni Arab support as the Mosul offensive continues.
After all, it is Iraq’s Sunni Arab community that has paid the highest toll in the war unleashed by Islamic State, with their cities such as Ramadi and Fallujah lying in ruins and millions displaced from their homes. This draining support for Islamic State, as demonstrated by its quick defeat in Kirkuk, gives hope that the militant group will struggle to stage a comeback after it loses Mosul and control of other remaining areas in Iraq.- Wall Street Journal
