Canadian special forces taking more active role in Iraq as Liberals extend ISIS mission | Globalnews.ca

Canadian special forces are taking a more active role in the battle for Mosul, where ISIS continues to hold on despite weeks of bloody fighting.

National Defence says some of the 200 Canadian special forces in northern Iraq have entered east Mosul and are now helping the Iraqi military free the western half of the city.

That represents a significant shift as the Canadians had largely avoided Mosul and spent little time with the Iraqi military, working instead with Kurdish forces to the north and east.
