Since February of this year, Iraqi government forces have destroyed more than 1,3 IG militants in the operation to liberate western Mosul (the group is banned in the Russian Federation), reports RIA News report of the military department of Iraq.



“A total of 1321 terrorist has been destroyed since February, including a number of commanders. Under the control of the state, the military returned about 400 square kilometers of territory, ”the report says the commander of the operation Abdel-Amir Yararally.

Iraqi units are currently advancing across historical parts of Mosul, however, the offensive is complicated by dense urban development, which forces the military to avoid actions dangerous to the civilian population.

It is noted that taking control of the historical part of the city will be a symbolically important success on the way to the destruction of the IG, since it was from there that the leader of the group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the creation of a "caliphate" in 2014.

    Al-Nuri Mosque does not give up. By the way, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was held captive by amers. Released ... To freedom. And now in this mosque, in general, as a fortress, there are hundreds of insane Sunnis. It’s easier to bomb ...

    It would be interesting to find out what the cost of the destruction of one militant in monetary terms, moreover, it is desirable to separate the estimates of different countries.

    ... civilians do not threaten our borders in the Caucasus .... but - the forest is cut - the chips fly .. and let them fly far ... so much the Arabs have bred — they want the Caliphate to the northern seas, but do we need this? ..
