Iraqi PM Announces End of ISIS-Daesh’s Caliphate

  • Published on Jun 29, 2017
    Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has announced the end of Daesh’s so-called caliphate after the liberation of Nuri mosque in Mosul. Abadi said in a statement that the victory marks the end of QUOTE-the state of falsehood. He noted that Iraqi forces will continue to hunt down terrorists. Nuri mosque was captured by Iraqi forces on Thursday. Terrorists blew up the mosque a week ago as the army started a push in its direction. Retaking the iconic mosque handed a symbolic victory to the Iraqi forces because Daesh had declared its so-called caliphate there after taking the city in 20-14. According to the Iraqi military, the battle for Mosul will end in the coming days as remaining terrorists are now bottled up in just a few neighborhoods. The army launched the offensive to retake Mosul last October.
