Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi says Iraqi forces need three months to completely destroy Daesh as a large-scale operation is underway to liberate the northern city of Mosul, the Takfiri terrorist group’s last major stronghold in the Arab country.

“Conditions indicate that Iraq needs three months to eliminate Daesh," Abadi told state TV on Tuesday.

However, US Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend claimed on Monday that it will take at least two years to purge militants from Iraq and Syria. 

Asked about the assertion, the Iraqi premier said, "The Americans were very pessimistic. They used to talk about a really long period, but the remarkable successes achieved by our brave and heroic fighters reduced that. I foresee that in Iraq it will take three months."
