Iraqi troops are losing control of one of the country’s major oil refineries to the Islamic terrorist group ISIS, according to a U.S. official today.
The estimated 270 soldiers on the Baiji refinery are outnumbered and trapped as the battle raged on for a fourth day with up to 500 ISIS militants.
The terrorists plan to keep the soldiers isolated until the run out of food and ammunition, a U..S. source said.
The source told ABC that the government soldiers are trapped and they are running out of supplies. The military is unable to send in back up as the road to Baiji is controlled by ISIS.
He said: ‘There is very little the Iraqi government can do to save or liberate those guys.’
