Update for Tuesday, June 14, 2016

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

For the first time since October, 2014, a U.S. Army Apache helicopter has engaged in direct combat in Iraq. The attack destroyed a car or truck bomb near the town of Qayyarah, south of Mosul. The U.S. has been pressing Iraq to accept involvement of Apaches in combat and the Iraqi government has finally consented.

The Iraqi army, after an embarrassingly stalled offensive, has recaptured the village of Nasr, also south of Mosul.

Doctors without Borders says that the thousands of civilians fleeing Fallujah lack adquate shelter and clean water.

Hundreds of men are missing from among the refugees, whose families fear for their fate at the hands of Shiite militias. Some, however, may be in detention while being screened by government forces, and will eventually be released. The government says 6,000 men have been detained of whom 1,000 have already been released and that most of the rest will be soon. (We shall see.)

Officials claim continuing advances in the Fallujah area,

In Afghanistan, a border skirmish between Afghan and Pakistani forces is in its third day. It seems quite odd that the governments are unable to put a stop to this.  One Afghan soldier has died in the fighting.

Nine Afghan soldiers are killed and 5 injured in an attack on their post in Nimroz. Some wounded are in critical condition. There are said to have also been an unknown number of Taliban casualties.
