"The rapid advance of the forces of the self-proclaimed Islamic government in Iraq and Syria, which began about two and a half months ago, has caused many concerns in the region and beyond.The victory of the "Islamic State" forces on some fronts against the Iraqi Kurdistan forces has added to these concerns, and has led the United States and some other countries to send weapons to the Peshmerga Group, and the United States will arrange air strikes against Islamic State positions.
