RPT: ISIS Takes Key Iraqi Military Base
ISIS militants have reportedly seized control of a key military base near the city of Hit in Iraq's Anbar province - which the Iraqi Army is calling a “tactical retreat” - as the terror group continues to make gains in both Iraq and Syria.
This comes a day after Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, confirmed that U.S.-manned Apache helicopters were called in to head off an ISIS advance just 15 miles from Baghdad International Airport.
“Technically, the use of Apache helicopters is not a ground war, but it is about as close as you can get to one without having boots on the ground,” Greg Palkot reported on "Your World" today from just across the Turkish border.
Palkot added that ISIS continues to fight on multiple fronts, as they battle Kurdish forces for the crucial Syrian city of Kobani along the Syria-Turkey border.
Despite U.S. coalition forces targeting ISIS in and around Kobani with multiple airstrikes, the terror group has continued its assault on the city.
"While it is slowing ISIS down, it's not stopping it here, either," Palkot said. "One source tonight claiming to Fox News that ISIS now holds 50 percent of the town. That is not confirmed, but it is alarming."
