ISIS is reportedly closing in on Baghdad. This is the claim being made by the vicar of Iraq’s only Anglican Church. According to him, the Islamic militant group is only about one mile away from the Iraqi capital.
Airstrikes against ISIS targets were supposed to stop the group from taking Baghdad. But, the advance by ISIS toward Baghdad shows that the group isn’t weakening despite U.S.-led airstrikes in Iraq.
ISIS executed 300 Iraqi soldiers last week during their march toward the Iraqi capital and attempted to break into a prison in northern Baghdad.
