Iraqi forces battled militants on several fronts and were poised to receive the help of 450 extra US troops slated for deployment near Ramadi.

Washington's decision to send more advisers and trainers to Iraq failed however to silence critics who say the White House lacks a strategy to combat the Islamic State group.

A year after a militant-led offensive saw the government lose control over swathes of Iraq, military operations to weaken IS were experiencing mixed fortunes.

The autonomous Kurdistan region's peshmerga forces pushed south and west of Kirkuk on the back of intensive bombing by Iraqi and US-led coalition warplanes.
