From FNC Jennifer Griffin:

According to multiple well placed US defense sources, US airstrikes involving manned and unmanned jet fighters are continuing for a 3rd day around the Mosul dam. Iraqi ground forces and Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are involved in an “extensive” ground operation to retake the Mosul dam. Expect a “lengthy, multi-phase operation” to retake the dam. The operation began about 22:00 pm Eastern Friday night (early Saturday morning in Iraq).

US officials also say that they have confirmation that about 82 – 90 Yezidi men were massacred by ISIS fighters in the Khojo village near Sinjar on Friday. There are new reports of 300 Yezidi men being slaughtered from the same village that have not yet been confirmed by US official sources.
