Iraqi army retakes 10 villages around Mosul

The Iraqi army, backed by Popular Mobilization Units and Kurdish Peshmerga forces, has gained more ground in the fight against Daesh terrorists in the northern parts of the country.

Iraqi forces have retaken at least ten villages from the terrorists around Mosul, 400 kilometers north of Baghdad. They've also killed a number of terrorists. The advancement was made on the fourth day of a massive operation to liberate the northern Nineveh province, of which Mosul is the capital.

The Iraqi government is hoping to recapture Mosul this year. The city, which is the main hub of Daesh in Iraq, fell to the hands of the terrorists in 2014. Iraqi forces have recently dealt heavy blows to Daesh. They managed to liberate Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, last month.
