Ground offensive on IS to start soon: US envoy

Dear All,

According to the Chinese news source “Xinhuanet”, a major ground offensive against IS/ISIS/ISIL will start soon with the United States providing support to the Country of Jordan.

As you can see below, I have also verified this information by a second source, the “Global Post”.

What will be of great interest is if IS/ISIS/ISIL decides to begin the preparation of grouping their forces in opposition as they seek to defend their territorial gains.

We can only hope that they do, as I believe it could quicken the demise of IS/ISIS/ISIL.

We should also expect to see attacks from more than one front; as the Kurds(and other groups)  will most likely open their front(s) at the same time that the Jordanians start theirs.

It should be a very interesting news cycle when the battle for revenge begins in earnest and the blood of retribution begins soaking the desert sands of the Middle East.

May God bless those who enter into battle against the evil devils of  “IS/ISIL/ISIS”, and may God have mercy on the souls of the “IS/ISIS/ISIL” as you can be sure that no one else will!

Best regards,

Ron Kirkish

AMMAN, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. envoy for the international coalition against the Islamic State (IS) group has said that a major ground offensive will start soon, the state-run Petra news agency reported on Sunday.

The Iraqi forces will lead the offensive with support from members of the coalition, the U.S. envoy General John Allen said in an interview with the Amman-based news agency.

The general said that work had already started to prepare 12 brigades from Iraq for the offensive, adding that training and equipping of the brigades had begun.

Allen said he will soon head to East Asia to involve more countries in the coalition, which already includes 62 countries.

The United States will provide support to Jordan, a key player in the region.

Also on Sunday, a squadron of F-16 fighter jets from the United Arab Emirates, together with the pilots, technicians and equipment, arrived in Jordan to support fighting the IS group, according to Petra.

The Royal Jordan Air Force said early Sunday that it will continue striking the IS, and that the size of the air strikes will depend on targets.

Over the past three days, the Jordanian air forces have attacked 56 IS-affiliated targets, including its leadership centers, training camps and militants, destroying their weapons, vehicles and facilities.

Jordan has taken part in 946 air missions since it joined the U.S.-led international coalition last year, the military said, adding that the coalition forces have conducted some 5,500 missions and killed more than 7,000 IS militants.

Earlier on Thursday, Jordan restarted bombing IS targets after one of its fighter pilots was captured and burnt alive by the IS.

The air raids continued on Friday and Saturday.
