Kurdish forces backed by U.S. air cover made gains Friday against ISIS fighters in Iraq’s Mosul province. The Kurdish fighters, (also known as the Peshmerga), retook several villages seized by ISIS during their lightning assault in Iraq.

US has thus far conducted some 131 air strikes against ISIS targets in the last several weeks and has sent military advisers to Iraq to help with strategies to combat ISIS.
