Operation Inherent Resolve Spokesperson Colonel Steve Warren briefed reporters at the Pentagon via satellite from Baghdad on U.S. military operations against ISIL* militants in Iraq and Syria. Colonel Warren said operations to liberate Fallujah, Iraq, were now underway, and the coalition was supporting the effort with airstrikes and artillery fire. He also addressed concerns over photographs showing U.S. special forces wearing the insignia of Kurdish troops. He said the decision was unauthorized and inappropriate given the “political sensitivities” around the issue. Asit would be his last press briefing from Iraq, Colonel Warren was also acknowledged for his service.

*The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or DAISH/DAESH in Arabic is a militant group that has called itself the Islamic State. close
