BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:35 A.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIL) presence in Iraq is nearing its end as their terrorists watch their last stronghold in northwestern Nineveh fall to the Iraqi Armed Forces after a week of fighting.

With more than 80 percent of the city liberated, the Iraqi Armed Forces have pushed into the eastern sector of Tal ‘Afar, where the Islamic State is attempting to make their last stand, despite overwhelming odds against them.

Once Tal ‘Afar is officially liberated, the Islamic State will no longer have a presence in northern Iraq.

For the Iraqi Armed Forces, this victory in the Nineveh Governorate comes just two years after the Islamic State terrorists ravished the western part of the country and pushed to the outskirts of Baghdad.
