Kurdish forces wrest key town from ISIL

Recovery of strategic border town in Iraq has potential of stirring either Arab-Kurd tensions or camaraderie.

    Kurdish forces have managed to retake territory from the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIL) group. The latest battlefield gain was in Rabia, a strategic border town in Iraq.

    The Kurdish takeover of this region has the potential of stirring Arab-Kurd tensions or it could be the first time they fight side by side against ISIL.
