English edition of Asharq Al-Awsat - the world's premier pan-Arab daily.

Iraqi counterterrorism units reported on July 15 that they had detained 20 female Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants, including three Turkish citizens, captured in a secret tunnel discovered under the Old City neighborhood of Quleiat in Mosul.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abadi announced the liberation of Mosul on 10 July, describing it as an "absolute victory" after months of fierce fighting with Daesh.

National army, police and other security troops along with Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) partook in the parade.


The Iraqi military forces are prepared to hunt for the Daesh members out of the borders with the permission of the governments of Baghdad and Damascus, Iraqi Ambassador to Tehran Rajih Sabir Aboudi al-Mousavi told Tasnim.

"As the battle to retake west Mosul approached its conclusion this week, the IOM Iraq Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) reported an estimated 380,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) - or over 63,000 families - newly recorded east of Mosul city", the press release said. Iraq's US -backed forces succeeded in wresting Mosul from the Islamic State group but at the cost of enormous destruction. Backed by the US -led worldwide coalition, Iraq last October launched a wide-scale military offensive to recapture Mosul and the surrounding areas, with various Iraqi military, police and paramilitary forces taking part in the operation.

According to the IOM, only five per cent of the displaced went to other Iraqi provinces, and more than 220,000 have already been able to return to their homes in the liberated areas of Mosul.
