Iraq PM congratulates troops on ‘big victory’ in Mosul

big victory

Iraq Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has congratulated Iraqi fighters on this big victory in Mosul even as fighting continues in Mosul’s Old City neighborhood where forces are about 250 meters from the Tigris River and facing increasingly brutal resistance.

Al-Abadi spoke during a press conference in Baghdad yesterday, less than a week after he declared an end to IS’ self-styled caliphate after Iraqi forces achieved an incremental win by retaking the landmark al-Nuri Mosque in the Old City.

Iraqi forces launched the operation to retake Mosul, the country’s second largest city, in October.
