One month after announcing the liberation of Mosul, Iraqi forces are making headway in the country’s north against the group calling itself Islamic State.
The Iraqi premier has announced the defeat of "Islamic State" (IS) after months of fighting to uproot the militant group. But European authorities have warned that its ideology still remains a threat to global security.
Iraq's premier has warned militants of the self-styled "Islamic State" to surrender "or be killed." Iraqi forces have made significant gains over the past year, culminating in the liberation of Mosul.
The US-led coalition has hailed the liberation of the strategic city of Tal Afar as a "stunning victory" for Iraqi forces. But as IS regroups, US officials have warned that the militant group's leader may still be alive.
The Iraqi military has begun its latest offensive against the so-called "Islamic State," weeks after liberating the city of Mosul. IS still occupies territory around Mosul, but its "caliphate" has effectively collapsed.
