U.S. military officers say that Canadian special forces are on the front lines of a new offensive in Iraq to retake villages from the Islamic State east of Mosul. The coalition troops were spotted with Kurdish forces as they prepared for battle recently. As many as 5,500 Kurdish troops are attempting to seize villages located about 20 kilometres east of Mosul. Heavy fighting was reported Sunday. Soldiers with the Canadian Special Operations Regiment from CFB Petawawa in the Ottawa Valley are in northern Iraq to train and advise the Kurds. more
