According to the Pentagon, the U.S. military and Joint Chiefs of Staff are calling for more troops to be sent to Iraq in a possible offensive toward Mosul, the ISIS stronghold in Northern Iraq.

Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford said the battle for Mosul will be tough and stressed that Iraqi forces will be the ones fighting that battle.  “We will be in a position to provide advise, assist and enabling capabilities to make them successful,” he said.

“From a military-to-military perspective, we’ve significantly increased our information- [and] intelligence-sharing over the last few months, and we have specific locations where we bring together a number of our coalition partners to do just that,” Dunford said.

Mosul is the strategic stronghold for ISIS and will be one of the toughest challenges the region has faced in terms of toppling ISIS-held cities.  If Mosul is taken by coalition forces, it will be a crushing blow to ISIS communications and logistics.
