BAGHDAD, Nov 16 : The United States' top military officer told American troops on a surprise visit to Baghdad on Saturday that the momentum in the battle with IS was "starting to turn", but predicted a drawn-out campaign lasting several years.
General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was visiting Iraq for the first time since President Barack Obama responded to IS advances this summer by ordering troops back into a country they left in 2011.
Hours earlier, an Iraqi army colonel said security forces appeared close to retaking the country's biggest refinery at Baiji, which has been under siege for months by IS militants.     ?REUTERS
