June 29 2017 02:22 PM

Iraqi military spokesperson, Brigadier General Yahya Rasool announced on Thursday that ISIS extremists’ reign in the country is over.

“Their fictitious state has fallen,” Rasool added.

Three years to the day since ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the establishment of the so-called caliphate from the same spot.

On February 19, US-backed Iraqi forces launched a wide scale military operation to oust ISIS  terrorists from the right bank of Mosul city, their last major stronghold. Before this, the forces managed to free parts of the left bank of the city.
