According to Turkish media and the Turkish government food and water have been/are being dropped on the mountain which the Yazidis fled to - supplied by Turkey and some aid agencies and delivered by Iraqi Air Force helicopters.

Several villages and one important Christian town east of Mosul were overrun by ISIS(IS) last night and today.

A refugee camp west of Erbil is reportedly being emptied by the KRG because ISIS(IS) is approaching it.

All of the residents of a town southwest of Erbil, and northwest of Kirkuk, have fled the town because ISIS(IS) is approaching.

ISIS(IS) is reported to have advanced to within 45 km of Erbil in a few areas.

Iraqi Kurdish media has been reporting for three days now news which goes something like 'The Peshmerga are just about to retake X location from ISIS(IS)' but none of them seem to have been retaken by the Peshmerga.

The Iraqi Air Force is reported to have bombed ISIS(IS) in northern Iraq again today.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
