ERBİL - Reuters
Units from the Iraqi army, Counter-Terrorism Services, Sunni tribal forces and Iranian-backed Popular Mobilisation forces are participating in an offensive to recapture al-Qaim and Rawa, two towns which lie on the border area with Syria.
"ISIL members have to choose between death and surrender," Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in a statement announcing the offensive last week. Daesh is another name for ISIL.
