Iraqi forces take nine villages from Daesh west of Mosul

Published on December 12, 2016 by   ·   No Comments

Iraqi forces have managed to liberate several villages near Mosul from the grip of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group as part of larger operations to fully recapture the northern city.
The organization said in a statement on Sunday that the villages of Tal Ghazal, Tal Majan and Shwira have been purged of Daesh, adding that Iraqi forces managed to thwart a terrorist attack targeting the troops advancing in the area.
The developments come as part of operations launched by Iraqi Hashd al-Sha’abi forces in the areas to the west of Tal Afar in western Nineveh Province on Sunday. The operations aim to purge the villages and areas which are still under Daesh control and to regain control of the roads connecting the areas west of Mosul.
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has vowed that Mosul would be fully recaptured by the end of 2016.
