journalist james foley. the beheading video provoked outrage. it was the first of several brutal executions. jihadi john was identified as a british citizen, mohammed emwazi, last february. a former hostage described him as a psychopath. he was born in kuwait and moved to england as a boy and it's believed he left syria in 2013. emwazi is known to help in executions of these journalists and a number of other western hostages. he had been on the rhine for years. the u.s. launched air strikes against isis and syria last year. a number of senior isis members have been killed, but if jihadi's john's death is confirmed, he would be the best known. >> johnathan vigliotti in london, thank you. this morning in iraq, kurdish forces entered the isis-held town of sinjar. it began yesterday supported by
u.s. air strikes. charlie d'agata is with the kurdish troops and joins us on the phone from sinjar. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i'm actually standing inside sinjar city. it happened a couple of hours ago. people on foot and kurdish forces started sneaking down the mountainside into the city itself and then dozens more followed, followed by hundreds after that. there is sporadic gunfire that rang out in several neighborhoods, especially to the west and east of the city. we are to the north. now, as i speak, now they are walking through the streets. hundreds of them are celebrating a victory. they are claiming a victory. they say sinjar is now cleared. this morning, we heard a lot of gunfire, but that may have been celebratory gunfire. you can see the level of destruction as we walk around here. several neighbors have been pinpointed by the u.s. air strikes to the north, specifically where whole neighborhoods have just been leveled.
the same situation off to the east where isis is suspected to be holding out. now, it is still tense, because there's so much destruction, so much debris in the roads and in the streets, the concern now is that there may be trip wires and there may be pressure plates and there may be ieds. we heard one controlled explosion at one of these homemade bombs. the job now will be to clear out the city of these homemade bombs and boobytraps inside the buildings for the residents to be able to return. >> charlie, can you remind us about why this city is so strategically significant? >> reporter: yes. for two reasons. it's a strategic significance to the city because it sits essentially sits on a direct line between the two isis strongholds of raqqa and mosul in iraq. is there a highway that it straddles. now the kurdish forces have essentially cut off the crucial
supply lines between those two big cities and driven a wedge. symbolically, it's important because this is the city where a group was driven out and their horrible stories about massacres and rapes going on inside the city. many people fled to a mountain in sinjar, where we were. and this is where the u.s. military, 14 months ago, decided enough is enough and started their air campaign because of what happened here in sinjar. >> charlie d'agata in sinjar, iraq, thank you very much. today is a national day of mourning in lebanon. islamic militants say they are responsible for two suicide bombings that killed at least 43 people yesterday and over 200 others were wounded. the bombers struck a hezbollah stronghold in southern beirut. speaking in iowa, donald trump reluctantly divulged his plan for taking care of isis. >> isis is making a tremendous amount of money because they
have certain oil caps, right? they are certain areas of oil they took away. they have some in syria, some in iraq. i would bomb the -- from them. >> trump said he had to reveal his strategy because people didn't believe he had a plan to take on isis. trump also ramped up his attacks against rival ben carson and the three democratic candidates are getting ready for tomorrow's debate. don champion is in new york with more on that. good morning, don. >> good morning. >> reporter: for more than 90 minutes, trump railed against his rivals in the race yesterday. his harshest criticism was for fellow front-runner ben carson. trump basically equated carson's childhood temper to the illness of a child molester. >> if you're a child molester, there is no cure. pathological, there is no cure. >> reporter: donald trump pulled no punches on the campaign trail thursday as he continued to pick apart ben carson's personal story.
>> he went after his mother with a hammer! he hits a friend of his in the face with a padlock. he took a knife and he went after a friend and he lunged! how stupid are the people of iowa? how stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap? >> reporter: carson has called the questions over his past, quote, ridiculous. this late thursday, gop contender carly fiorina came to the neurosurgeon's defense on social media saying anyone can turn a multimillion dollar inheritance into more money, but all of the money in the world won't make is as smart as ben carson. trump's comments come as republican candidates continue to spar over immigration. florida senator marco rubio has called for a sensible approach. >> i don't think it's reasonable to say you're going to round up and deport 11 million people. >> reporter: hoping to counter rube's rise, ted cruz seized on the issue. >> i'm the only candidate
standing on that debate stage who has never supported amnesty and, in fact, who led the fight to defeat amnesty in congress. >> reporter: on the democratic side, the stakes are high for bernie sanders and martin o'malley as they gd into saturday's debate in iowa. polls show hillary clinton far ahead of both contenders in the race. most democratic voters believe trump would be the hardest to beat come november. now, sanders did pick up a key endorsement thursday. he secured the support of the 200,000 member american postal workers union. it is the largest labor union to back him. a big boost he needs going into tomorrow night's debate. >> don champion in new york, thank you.
