Iraqi forces close in on historic mosque where Islamic State declared its ‘caliphate’ – LA Times


Jawdat added that troops were closing in on the mosque from three sides, and that Islamic State “had lost its supply routes” and there was “confusion in its ranks.”

Isis is losing ground. This should be a bigger story.
