BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:08 A.M.) – Iraqi Prime Minster Haider al-Abadi has claimed the the operation to liberate Mosul from ISIS has entered “its last stage.”
He also made an offer for terrorists who surrender to receive a fair trial, but those who continue to resist will “definitely be killed.”
He also emphasized that all precautions are being taken so civilians were not killed in the crossfire.
“We are so careful, even with the families of Daesh [ISIS], we are taking care of them but not the fighters. We will not target the families but the terrorists of Daesh, we will fight them and if they are arrested they will face a fair trial and if they will fight they will be killed,” he said.
