The liberation of Mosul

IRAQ, MOSUL
July 2017

The city of Mosul, the seat of so-called ISIS in Iraq , has almost been totally liberated .
An official declaration of victory from the government is expected soon.

The Iraqi army is clearing  up the last pockets of resistance from Islamic State (ISIS) militants in Mosul, after a battle that lasted many months. Iraqi forces, backed by US-led air strikes, have tried to retake the city since October last year. Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, Sunni Arab tribesmen and Shia militiamen, supported by US-led coalition warplanes and military advisers, have been involved in the battle.

ISIS seized Mosul in June 2014 before sweeping across much of Iraq's and proclaiming a "caliphate" straddling Iraq and Syria. But they have been losing ground over the past nine months in both countries as coallition forces advance on their strongholds.
