From Fox News: Spanish police arrested seven suspected members Sunday of a jihadi cell linked to Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra militants during raids in the eastern provinces of Valencia and Alicante and in Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta.

The city has been “fully liberated,” Iraqi forces said and there may be some mop-up operations in the city to complete.
But what is left unsaid is that it took five months for U.S. coalition air support to push the Islamists out of Kobane (which is located in Syria, close to the Syria-Turkey border). The Kurdish militia, the peshmerga, did their job well and sacrificed many of their lives to take the city.
We hope so, too. Tragic how ISIS killed another Japanese hostage as the country was preparing to meet their demands.
That’s an astoundingly high sum, but hostage takers like the Islamist terrorist group Islamic State have no remorse over executing hostages.
Figures, huh? Without a full commitment, not much will change on the ground. Thanks, Obama.
