Iran President Hails Liberation of Iraq’s Mosul from Daesh Control
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has hailed the liberation of the Iraqi city of Mosul from the occupation of Daesh terrorist group after three years.
In a message to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Friday, the Iranian president extended his congratulations to him and the Iraqi nation over the liberation of the biggest Daesh-controlled city in Iraq and the breaking free from the yoke of crime and violence that had been unprecedented in recent centuries.
He added that this great victory was achieved thanks to cooperation, coordination, dedication and struggle by the Iraqi people, army soldiers and Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), commonly known as Hashd al-Sha'abi, backed by neighboring countries.
Rouhani added that the major victory shows the significance of a genuine fight against those criminals who cruelly displayed violence and murder in the name of Islam.
He expressed the Islamic Republic's readiness to continue with the all-out fight against these criminals across the Middle East.
In a statement on Thursday, the Iraqi premier announced an end to Daesh's "state of falsehood" following the recapture of the historical Grand al-Nuri Mosque at the heart of Mosul.
"The return of al-Nuri Mosque and al-Hadba minaret to the fold of the nation marks the end of the Daesh state of falsehood," Abadi said.
