ISIS Captures Large Part of Key Oil Refinery in Iraq

As the Washington Free Beacon [1] reported:

“Iraqi forces defending the country‚Äôs largest oil refinery are surrounded and running low on supplies, calling to question how long they can remain in control of the critical site.”

“A Reuters report [2] Monday provided a grim outlook on the war against the Islamic State. The Baiji refinery has been a fiercely fought over asset since IS swept through the northern half of the country.”
