Iraq's popular forces announced on Sunday that the US has no role whatsoever in preparing the plan for liberating the city of Mosul in Nineveh province, the country's second-largest city which is considered as the last ISIL stronghold in Iraq.

The announcement came after the Turkish Al-Zaman news website quoted a US source as saying that the US forces had prepared 5 battalions of the Iraqi army for the upcoming attacks on the ISIL strongholds in Iraq in April.

Ahmad Al-Assadi, the spokesman of the Iraqi popular forces, denied that the US has played any role in preparing the plan to liberate Mosul.

"The Americans have no role in the steps taken to liberate Mosul," Al-Assadi said.

He noted that there are no American troops as trainer, advisor or soldier in Iraq to prepare the Iraqi soldiers to regain control over Mosul.

Meantime, Hossein Salem, a member of the Iraqi Parliament's Security and Defense Committee reiterated that the anti-ISIL coalition is trying to prevent the advances of the Iraqi security and popular forces in areas under the control of the Takfiri terrorist group.

Earlier today, Al-Arabiya news network reported that the ISIL had withdrawn from its main military base in Mosul.

It said that the ISIL abandoned its military base in the Southern parts of Mosul.

The report said the main reason for ISIL's withdrawal had been intensified airstrikes in recent days.

Earlier this week, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said that his country was planning to regain Mosul as he stressed the need for more arms and equipment to defeat the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group.

Abadi said that Iraq was making preparations to regain control of Mosul which was occupied by the Takfiris last summer.

He said there were enough fighters on the ground but they needed arms and equipment to defeat ISIL.

The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
