US airstrikes credited for liberation of Christian villages in Syria

Via Aleteia:

With the fall of Ramadi in Iraq and Palmyra in Syria, there have been questions about whether the Obama Administration’s approach to fighting the Islamic State group is working. Are airstrikes against militants enough, or will we eventually see American “boots on the ground?”

In one part of Syria, at least, the airstrikes might just be having an effect.

Fides news agency reports that ISIS has retreated from Christian villages along the Khabur River in the northeastern Syrian province of Jazira.
