"Kurdish forces captured a stretch of a strategic highway in northern #Iraq today with the help of thousands of Yazidi fighters. The road is a supply line connecting Raqqa, in Syria, to Mosul, in Iraq. The campaign marked the early stages of an offensive to reclaim the town of #Sinjar from ISIS, which seized it last year. @bdentonphoto — one of 2 @nytimes journalists embedded with the fighters — captured an ISIS suicide car bomb as it exploded near Mount Sinjar. The bomb was blown up by an antitank missile before the driver could reach his target." By nytimes on Instagram.
