Iraqi Forces Start Massive Operations to Free Remaining ISIL-Held Areas in Mosul

The Iraqi security forces could open their way into several districts in Western Mosul after forcing the ISIL terrorists to withdraw from the region on Sunday.

According to a statement by the Mosul Operations Room, the Iraqi counter-terrorism forces arrived in al-Eraibi and al-Rifaie regions and could shatter the ISIL defense lines.

Also, the Iraqi rapid reaction police forces could retake al- al-Ektisadieen region and the Southern and Northern parts of 17th of July district.

The Iraqi defense ministry has predicted that Mosul city will be fully seized back before the holy month of Ramadan.

Earlier today, a senior Iraqi military commander said government forces have launched a new push to drive ISIL militants from four neighborhoods in West Mosul.

Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir Rasheed Yarallah said in a statement Sunday that Iraqi special forces are moving to the al-Eraibi and al-Rifaie neighborhoods, while federal police and regular army
forces are fighting ISIL in nearby al-Ektisadieen and 17th of July neighborhoods.

Yarallah said the forces "have broken through the enemy fortifications" without giving more details.

The operation to retake Mosul was launched in October and the city's East was declared liberated in January. Iraqi forces launched the operationnto retake the West the following month.

In recent weeks, Iraqi troops have slowly closed in on a small cluster of ISIL-held neighborhoods in the city's West.

Iraqi MP: US, Turkey Impeding Liberation of Tal Afar

A senior Iraqi legislator blasted the US and Turkey for their antagonistic behavior towards efforts to liberate the city of Tal Afar in Nineveh province.

Iskandar Watout, a member of the Iraqi parliament's Security and Defense Committee, told reporters in a press conference that the process to take back Tal Afar is facing resistance and pressures by Turkey and the US.

He called on the Iraqi government not to become influenced by Turkey and the US or Iraqi Kurdistan President Masoud Barzani and try to expel the Turkish forces from Iraq's soil.

Watout described Tal Afar as a vital and important city hosting tens of ISIL bases, and said, "Operations against the terrorist groups in Iraq should continue unstopped until full victory."

In relevant remarks in April, another Iraqi parliamentarian revealed that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to hold back the Hashd al-Shaabi (Iraqi Mobilization) forces from any operation to liberate Tal Afar.

"Erdogan has in a message to Abadi warned that if Hashd al-Shaabi advances towards Tal Afar, the Turkish forces will also be deployed in the region," Nahleh al-Hababi was quoted as saying by al-Mouqef al-Iraqi news website.

The Iraqi legislator, meantime, underlined that Hashd al-Shaabi has surrounded Tal Afar region from several fronts and would play the main role in the liberation operation.

Also, last month, a senior commander of Hashd al-Shaabi underlined his forces' full preparedness to launch offensive against the ISIL bases in Tal Afar.

"Tal Afar is the ISIL's last base in Mosul. We have surrounded the city since several months ago," Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes said.

Stressing the importance of Tal Afar and its liberation, he said, "The Iraqi volunteer forces are fully ready to attack Tal Afar but the decision to start the attack is upon the General Command of the Armed Forces."
