DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:15 P.M.) – Minutes ago, Hashd Al-Sha’abi liberated the strategic Tal ‘Afar Airport near the Syrian border-crossing after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) today.

According to Hashd Al-Sha’abi’s official media wing, their forces reached the Tal ‘Afar Airport’s gates at 7:00 P.M. (Baghdad Time) before a one hour long battle ensued with the Islamic State terrorists.

As a result of the Tal ‘Afar Airport’s liberation on Wednesday, Hashd Al-Sha’abi has effectively cutoff the Islamic State’s main supply route from the town of Tal ‘Afar to their capital of Mosul in northwestern Iraq.

The Iraqi Armed Forces will now shift their attention to the remaining villages surrounding Tal ‘Afar, as they look to expel the remaining Islamic State terrorists occupying this area.
