Iraqui cities in the midst of the conflict between advancing jihadists and regular army.

According to the Italian press agency AGI, the «Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) asked its» militants to «march» towards «Baghdad and Karbala, in the South of Iraq». An «audio message» has been «broadcast on the Internet jihadist websites by the spokesperson» of the militant group Abu Mohammed al Adnani al Shami.

«After having conquered» Mosul and Tikrit, «the jihadists arrived to the gates of Samarra, 125 kilometres to the north of the Capital».

The Iraqi army would be shelling the areas which are controlled by the «rebels», but it seems «unable for the moment to brake the advance» (agi.it).
