Iraq's army is engaged in operations to retake the city of Ramadi from Islamic State militants. More than 1,000 civilians remain trapped in the provincial capital, complicating efforts to wrest back control.
The terrorist organization "Islamic State" has largely been defeated in a military sense. But its ideologies live on, for example, in children who grew up under its regime. Other challenges remain as well.
German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen said the equipment would help bolster Jordan's border surveillance. She said Germany and Europe "have an interest in Jordan's stability."
After the terrorist organization al Qaeda, now the so-called "Islamic State" is trying to expand its influence in Africa. Military means alone are not enough to fight it.
Foreign fighters against "Islamic State" have been subjected to heavy mistreatment in Iraqi Kurdish prisons. Karlos Zurutuza and Ferran Barber spoke with western volunteers, and recounted months spent in jail.
