New video shows a U.S. airstrike against Islamic State militants in northern Iraq. The U.S. Defense Department says the attack took place on Tuesday near Arbil, the latest of several air strikes launched from the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf. The militant group controls roughly a third of Syria but has been sweeping across northern Iraq for months now. But, aided by U.S. air power, Kurdish peshmerga fighters are retaking key towns and villages as they battle back against Islamic State... and try to reclaim their territory.
