Syrian government forces and their allies captured another major eastern Aleppo neighborhood today, putting much of the city's rebel-held areas under government control for the first time in years. This comes just days after the first U.S. casualty, a sailor killed near Raqqa, the de facto capital for ISIS.

Meanwhile, in Iraq, the offensive to retake the city of Mosul from ISIS continues.

The Washington Post's Thomas Gibbons-Neff (@Tmgneff) joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti for an update.

This segment aired on November 28, 2016.
