BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:55 A.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces kicked off their long-awaited Tal ‘Afar offensive in the northwestern countryside of the Nineveh Governorate, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-‘Abadi announced this morning.

Led by the Federal Police and Iraqi Army, the armed forces stormed the Tal ‘Afar area from several axes, inflicting heavy damage on the Islamic State’s (ISIL) defenses.

According to the Iraqi military, their forces have already liberated the Al-‘Abrah Al-Saghirah area near Tal ‘Afar after overrunning the terrorist group’s positions near the city.

Once the Iraqi military takes control of Tal’Afar, the Islamic State will find themselves in serious trouble, as the former clears the remaining pockets of resistance in the Nineveh Governorate.
