Mosul Liberation to Be Announced Soon: Abadi

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi promissed on Thursday to conclude the military operations in Mosul very soon and announce the full liberation of the city which has been under the control of Islamic State (IS) since June 2014.
Abadi told a press conference following his weekly meeting with his cabinet that there are no differences between terrorist groups, and his government is committed fight them any form they are.

Commenting on IS’s most recent atrocity, which was the destruction of historic al-Hadba Minaret and al-Nuri Mosque in western Mosul, the Iraqi prime minister promised to spare no effort in working to properly reconstruct the heritages of civilisation.
