From NCF member Stafford Clary in Kurdistan:

About 20,000 Kurdistan forces are engaged in capturing and holding Shingal (Sinjar) Town and surrounding areas.

Reports indicate Operation Free Shingal has effectively severed a strategic ISIS supply route between Raqqa (Syria) and Mosul. A road segment between Shingal and Tal Afar is reportedly under Kurdistan control. Indications are that Kurdistan forces are moving on Tal Afar, a major town between Shingal and Mosul.

Due to anticipated improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and booby traps, fully capturing Shingal Town calls for caution and will take time.
