Airstrikes Begin: What To Know About Obama's Plan For Iraq

by Wochit 0:55 mins

President Barack Obama has given the green light to take two very different steps — airstrikes and airdrops — to address a security threat and a humanitarian crisis in Iraq. But what comes next remains unclear. The president authorized the airstrikes to fight ISIS, the Islamic militant group terrorizing northern Iraq, as it approaches the city of Erbil. Erbil is strategically important because it is the capital of the Kurdish region, home of the most reliable American support in the country, and is considered a stronghold against ISIS.
