isis.siNew York (ANN)Gruesome violence has plagued the northern and western parts of Iraq ever since Daesh terrorists launched an offensive in those regions last June, and took control of portions of the Iraqi territory.

The militants have been committing heinous crimes against all ethnic and religious communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.

Since September 2014, the US along with some of its allies has been conducting air raids against what are said to be the Daesh terrorists inside Syria without any authorization from Damascus or the United Nations.

The air assaults in Syria are an extension of the US-led aerial campaign against purported Daesh positions in Iraq, which started in August 2014.

This is while many critics including Iraqi officials have time and time again questioned the efficacy of these airstrikes.
