Iraqi PM Prepares to Announce End of Mosul Operation

 

MOSUL — All streets in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul have been cleared of Islamic State (IS) militants, a reliable source inside the city said on Friday.

According to the source, the Iraqi Federal Police together with the army are preparing themselves for a victory parade in Mosul, as the Prime Minister of Iraq, Haider al-Abadi, is about to declare the complete liberation of the city.

Military commanders said earlier on Friday that they expect the Iraqi PM’s statement on end of the operation of Mosul to be read in the upcoming hours.

The Iraqi forces recaptured the Grand al-Nuri Mosque in Mosul’s Old City, which marked the defeat of IS in the city.
