The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) currently has military control of a number of areas in the provinces of Anbar, Nineveh, Salahaddin and Diyala, including Nineveh’s capital Mosul and the Jurf al-Sukhar area of northern Babil Province. Iraqi and Kurdish security forces, supported by tribal and militia elements, have been making some progress in retaking territory from ISIL. The situation remains fluid.
