The Iraqi army and popular forces purged the ISIL terrorists from al-Qayara oil refinery in Southern Mosul after heavy clashes and killing at least 40 militants.

Brigadier General Najm al-Jabouri, the commander of Nineveh operations, made the announcement in an interview with Iraq's al-Ain news agency on Wednesday morning.

Noting that the terrorists had filled several oil wells before withdrawing from al-Qayara refinery, he said, "At least 40 ISIL militants were killed during the operations."

The Iraqi army and popular forces took back al-Qayara airbase after heavy clashes with the ISIL terrorist group early July.

Al-Qayara to the South of Mosul was fully seized back on Tuesday.

Iraq's joint military forces started the final phase of al-Qayara liberation operation on Tuesday morning and the city center, except few building complexes and a school, is under the Iraqi forces' control now.

Al-Qayara city is the largest oil-rich region in Nineveh province with many oil wells.
