Kurdish forces launch push against ISIS in north Iraq

IRBIL, Iraq: Kurdish security forces launched an offensive on ISIS in northern Iraq Wednesday, backed by U.S.-led airstrikes, and retook villages the jihadis used to launch attacks, officials said.

The Kurdistan Regional Security Council said peshmerga forces, who began a "large-scale offensive" around 7:00 a.m. (0400 GMT), retook four areas and were working to clear more.
