I have made this page to track the battle between YPG / Peshmerga and Da’esh. The images are from the Wikipedia page for ISIL. To view the progress of the battle, click on any of the images and use the arrow keys in the gallery. The thumbnails below only show part of the map.

One wonders if they weren’t really rescuing it from the Kurds. They didn’t do much when Da’esh surrounded it. Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 8.16.39 AM
