Iraqi Forces?

This is the first time that I had seen an article lead off with “Iraqi Trrops halt Madain Offensive”. I am sure that there have been some but not from Aljazeera. This article strongly gives the impression that the Iraqi forces and mediators are in control of the situation in Madain where an estimated 60 Shia hostages were taken by terrorists.
