ISIS Key Facility Regained by Iraqi Self-Defense Forces in Mosul

The Iraqi self-defense forces regained control over one of the key ISIS facilities in the western part of Mosul, Al Sumaria TV reports.

“The members of the self-defense forces have broke into ISIS headquarters in the western part of Mosul. This is the one of the largest ISIS HQ’s in the city. They raised the Iraqi flag over the building,” the source in the self-defense forces told Al Aumaria TV Channel.

The source also said that this HQ is very important for the terrorist group. The terrorists had left the building before the operation started fearing airstrikes, the source added.

Earlier, US Central Command’s Gen. Joseph Votel said that estimated 800-900 ISIS terrorists had been killed since the beginning of the Mosul offensive. On October 17, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the start of the operation to retake Mosul from ISIS, which is outlawed in many countries worldwide, including the United States and Russia. The offensive is backed by airstrikes by the US-led international coalition, Sputnik reported.
