Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi and Iraqi Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani agreed on joint military operations to take the strategic city of Mosul, capital of the Iraqi Nineveh province, back from the control of the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) takfiri group.

Abadi and Barzani also agreed to set up a joint operation room to set Mosul free, Al-Manar TV channel reported on Monday.

During his visit to Arbil, heading a high-ranking delegation, Abadi reiterated that all the Iraqi people will participate in the operation to set free the capital of the Nineveh province, the ISIL terrorists’ last stronghold in Iraq.

Barzani, for his part, vowed to help Iraq’s central government with all means to free Mosul.

On Saturday, an Iraqi airstrike killed several ISIL terrorists, and injured a senior commander of the takfiri group in southern Mosul.

The Iraqi air force conducted an airstrike against the ISIL terrorists in al-Qiara district in southern Mosul, and killed many of them, a security source said, adding that the so-called ‘Commander of Southern Mosul’ was severely injured.
