Main Mosul’s government building in the hand of Iraq security forces

Tuesday, 7 March 2017

 

BAGHDAD – Elite Iraqi security forces dislodged Islamic State militants from the main government building in Mosul on Tuesday, their last major city stronghold in Iraq, an Iraqi spokesman said.

According to Lieutenant Colonel Abdel Amir al-Mohammadawi, a spokesman for the elite interior ministry unit, special Rapid Response team stormed the Nineveh governorate building and the surrounding government complex in an overnight operation.

“They killed tens from Daesh,” he said, referring to the Islamic State group by one of its Arabic acronyms.

Recapturing the site would help Iraqi forces attack the militants in the nearby old city centre and mark a symbolic step towards restoring state authority over Mosul, even though the buildings are destroyed and not being used by Islamic State.
