ALJAZEERA - Ground offensives by the Iraqi army and Kurdish forces, backed by a barrage of US air raids, have forced ISIL fighters from several key towns in the north and south of Iraq, officials say.

Kurdish Peshmerga forces said on Saturday they had recaptured several towns and villages held by ISIL, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), in northern Iraq, while Iraqi government forces claimed to have retaken the town of Jurf al-Sakhr, 50km to the south of Baghdad.
