      US to Send Military Support to Iraq to Combat al Qaeda

      USA Today reports  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday that America would support Iraq as it combats al-Qaeda-linked militants who have seized cities in the country's west, but said the U.S. wouldn't send troops, calling the battle "their fight."

      Kerry made the comments as he left Jerusalem for Jordan and Saudi Arabia on Sunday, says USA Today, to discuss his effort to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians. He's had three days of lengthy meetings with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
