This is coolbert:
Iraqi forces in concert with Kurdish peshmerga a very good sign.
Iranian M-60 tanks too also have crossed the border into Iraq?
"Iran Sends Tanks Into Iraq to Fight Islamists (US M-60s)"
"As American jets flew top cover, in mid-August Kurdish Peshmerga militia and Iraqi special forces troops recaptured the strategic Mosul Dam from Islamic State militants. Meanwhile Iraqi Golden Brigade commandos liberated parts of Tikrit from the Islamists."
"But the militants counterattacked—and that drew Iran into the fighting. In a move that could have far-reaching consequences, Tehran has sent tanks [M-60] into northern Iraq."
That village of Turkmen Shia currently besieged by ISIL very close to the Iranian border.
That American M-60 a venerable but reliable design, as sold to the Iranian during the time of the Shah.
