Hello, i read you artic about : " Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant " and i found one mistake. Please corect it its about Opponent(s) State opponents where mentioned " Abkhazia " as state, it is false, Abkhazia is a part of Georgia . — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zura Suliashvili (talkcontribs) 20:53, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

  Not done As our article on Abkhazia explains, the status of Abkhazia is in dispute, and we will not describe it here simply as a "part of Georgia", as to do so would violate our policies on neutral point of view. Its status is clearly explained in that article. General Ization Talk 20:05, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Change "an" in the sentence " ISIL also committed ethnic cleansing on an historic and unprecedented scale in northern Iraq." to "a". for correct grammar. Wilsonahrens (talk) 17:56, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Not done: "[A]n historic" is at least as correct as "a historic", and less easily misunderstood. Happy days, LindsayHello 18:00, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
