Iraqi security forces – including the Kurdish peshmerga – have been making incremental progress against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorists inside Iraq, Pentagon Press Secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said today. In the past day and a half, Iraqi forces have made gains in many parts of the country, Kirby said at a Pentagon news conference.

“In central Iraq, [Iraqi security forces] operations to expand Iraqi control of territory beyond the Bayji oil refinery are making progress,” the admiral added.
