Islamic State of Losers Surrounded at Sinjar
Kurdish authorities say their Peshmerga forces have taken control of a "large area" of the Iraqi town of Sinjar from Islamic State militants.ISIS supporters are spinning and spamming desperately.
Iraqi Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani claimed large Peshmerga advances during a visit to nearby Mount Sinjar.
The town, near the Syrian border has been controlled by Islamic State (IS) militants since August.
Kurdish Peshmerga fighters backed by US-led air strikes launched a counter-offensive in the area last week.
IS controls a swathe of Iraq and Syria, where it has declared a caliphate.
The US said it launched 13 air strikes in Iraq on Sunday, four of which were on IS targets near Sinjar.
The US, Iraq and other Western and Arab countries have formed a coalition against the militant group and began air strikes in August.
So since when was being surrounded and waiting to die a victory? What you're fighting with the Islamic State of Losers.
