BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 P.M.) – Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi) launched an important offensive in the southwestern countryside of Mosul on Tuesday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last positions around Al-Hadhir.

According to Iraqi activist Haider Al-Sumeiri, the Popular Mobilization Units have already liberated the villages of Alwani, Musultan, ‘Ain Al-Sadid, Tal Halalah, Dubeysah, and Khanifis.

Once the Popular Mobilization Units reach Al-Hadhir, the Islamic State terrorists in this part of Mosul should be all but finished off, which only means bad news for their comrades left in Tal ‘Afar.
