US, Iraq Back Syrian Kurdish-led March on Raqqa, Turkey Objects
As the Iraqi army, supported by other anti-Islamic State forces, battles to oust the militants from Mosul in Iraq, Kurdish-led forces in Syria are marching toward Raqqa, another major Islamic State stronghold. A U.S.-led coalition is supporting local efforts to defeat the terrorists in both countries. Turkey, however, is critical of any Kurdish-led military action, fearing it would strengthen the Kurdish independence movement. Zlatica Hoke reports.
