BAGHDAD (Worthy News)– A key bridge north of Baghdad, used by Iraqi forces as a supply line, was destroyed when Islamic State jihadists detonated a suicide truck bomb on Tuesday.

An Iraqi army source confirmed with AFP that the bridge, located in Samarra, was completely destroyed. The city is roughly 70 miles outside of Baghdad.

Members of ISIL currently control the city of Tikrit and the destruction of the bridge limits Iraqi forces heading that direction to go over the nation’s Samarra dam bridge, AFP reported. The problem with traversing over the remaining bridge is that it isn’t made to handle the weight of many military vehicles. — Source

The ISIS Caliphate's Frightening First Month – Daily Beast
One month ago, Abu Muhammad al ‘Adnani, chief spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham (ISIS), announced a name change. The “Iraq and al Sham” was to be dropped and it was to be rebranded simply as the “Islamic State” (IS), the restored “Caliphate” led by Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, a man who also went for a name change, and now goes by the moniker “Caliph Ibrahim.”

A lot has happened in the month since then, and not just in Iraq and Syria. As a result, many important developments have not received the attention they are due. So it is high time we draw everything "IS" back into focus.
