Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, also known as Hashd al-Shaabi, foiled an attack launched by the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) Takfiri group west of the strategic northern city of Mosul

the terrorist group launched the attack north of Abu Samana village in the western suburbs of Mosul on Monday. 

A unit of the popular forces successfully repulsed the offensive and inflicted heavy losses on the Takfiri militants.

It came as the Iraqi army and Popular Mobilization Units backed by Kurdish Peshmerga forces continue their operations to liberate Mosul from the foreign-backed terrorists. 

They launched a joint operation on October 17 to retake Mosul.

On Sunday, Major General Maan al-Saadi, a commander of the Iraqi army’s special forces, which are spearheading the operation to retake Mosul, said the forces have taken control of 40 neighborhoods in the eastern parts of the city.

He said that the terrorists are no longer in control in Mosul and predicted the city’s full liberation in the coming days.

Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city and the capital of Nineveh Province, fell into the hands of Daesh in June 2014.
