IRAQ - SYRIA - After five months Iraqi army controls Baiji refinery, militants on the run [AN]


The security forces have entered into the country’s most important oil refinery, the center of a bitter struggle with the Islamic State. Retreating, the jihadists lay landmines. The agriculture minister accuses militants of having stolen more than one million tons of cereals.



Hopeful sign. But the horrors of Isis continue unabated, recent reports indicate that Isis is beheading children including girls Syria and Iraq. What is new here is the numbers. Since the beginning of time has anything so horrible been done - in God’s name?!!!
