Iraq War 2015 - Battle For Mosul: Kurdish Peshmerga Supported By U.S. Airstrikes Heavy Fighting During Assault Towards Mosul. Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, backed by U.S. Airstrikes in the form of A-10 Gun runs and JDAM strikes on IS positions, started an attack towards the citiy of Mosul in order to capture it back from militants who overtook the town in 2014. Recapturing the city of Mosul was one of the goals for 2015 and the battle just started as Kurdish fighters began to fight their way towards the citiy. Mosul is a city of over a million people in northern Iraq, some 400 km north of Baghdad. It is currently the largest city controlled by IS. The original city stands on the west bank of the Tigris River, opposite the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh on the east bank, but the metropolitan area has now grown to encompass substantial areas on both banks. After the new year started for the Kurds in Syria with heavy ongoing clashes fighting and firefights in the Battle for Kobani now Iraqi Kurds started their offensive in Iraq. The push for the city just begun and in the future more footage is exepted from the battle for Mosul.
