July 11, 2017: Iraq declared total victory over the Islamic State in Mosul on Monday. After three years, Iraq took full control on the country’s second largest city which was seized by extremists. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said, “This great feast day crowned the victories of the fighters and the Iraqis for the past three years.”

Al-Abadi alluded to the brutality of the battle for Mosul — Iraq’s longest yet in the fight against IS — saying the triumph had been achieved “by the blood of our martyrs.”
While Mosul fell to IS in a matter of days in 2014, the campaign to retake the city lasted nearly nine months. The fight, closely backed by airstrikes from the US-led coalition, brought an end to the extremists’ so-called territorial caliphate, but has also left thousands dead, entire neighbourhoods in ruins and nearly 900,000 displaced from their homes.
