Islamic State 'Defeated And On Run' In Sinjar


Kurdish fighters are in control of central Sinjar after taking it from Islamic State, says the Kurdistan security council.

Associated Press journalists reported seeing the fighters raise a Kurdish flag and fire off celebratory gunfire in the town on Friday morning.

Kurdish militia fighters, known as peshmerga, launched a major offensive to retake the town and cut a key highway on Thursday.

US-led coalition airstrikes supported the offensive, dubbed Operation Free Sinjar.

"ISIL defeated and on the run," the Kurdistan regional security council said in a tweet, using an acronym for Islamic State.
