The US-led coalition offensive for liberating Mosul from ISIS suffered two ominous downturns on its 10th day, Friday, Oct. 28, debkafile’s military sources report. One: Pro-Iranian Iraqi Shiites stand ready to “imminently” launch an attack on Tal Afar, sparking the threat of sectarian violence; and, two, the Islamic State is poised to launch surface missiles with a range of 500km against Baghdad, as well as Jordan and Israel.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
