Battle for Mosul: Iraqi, Kurdish forces make gains against jihadists

This week, we bring you a report from the ground in Iraq with Kurdish fighters as the battle to retake Mosul begins. We also look at Israel's plan to create more housing in the West Bank, this as Jewish settlers are ordered out of an illegal outpost. Finally, we focus on news by Syrians, for Syrians and from Syria. The managing editor of Paris-based Rozana radio joins us on set to shed light on covering the bloody five-year conflict.
