BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:55 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) suffered their greatest defeat in Iraq this week after conceding the final neighborhoods they controlled to the Iraqi Armed Forces in the city of Mosul.

For nearly two weeks, the Iraqi Armed Forces and ISIL were engaged in a bloody battle for several buildings in Mosul’s western sector.

However, the terrorist group was unable to hold onto these buildings, as government units swiftly advanced under heavy airstrikes from their air force.

With Mosul’s official liberation on Saturday, the Iraqi Armed Forces will now shift their attention to the strategic Tal ‘Afar area, which is the Islamic State’s last stronghold in northwest Iraq.
