Members of the Iraqi anti-terrorism forces wave the national flag in celebration after securing a checkpoint from Sunni militants in the village of Badriyah, 15 kms West of Mosul on August 19, 2014. Iraqi forces launched a string of attacks on Sunni militants, including at Saddam Hussein’s hometown Tikrit, as US President Barack Obama declared his firmest commitment yet to targeting jihadists.
