Canadian special ops helping Iraqis roll up remaining ISIS opposition, says Vance | CBC

Canadian special operations troops have been accompanying Iraqi forces on security operations as the last pockets of Islamic State resistance are mopped up, Canada’s top military commander told a House of Commons committee today.

Gen. Jonathan Vance, the chief of the defence staff, was careful to impress upon the committee that the missions are more like police actions than full-on military raids.

He said that “on a daily basis there is very little fighting, almost none” taking place in northern Iraq right now and the Islamic State has lost 98 per cent of the territory it conquered and occupied in 2014.
