Iraqi army soldiers, backed by volunteer Shia forces, have liberated most parts of the northern town of Baiji and the country’s largest oil refinery there from the grip of Daesh terrorists, security sources say.

Sabah al-Numani, spokesman for Iraq’s counter-terror forces, said Thursday that government troops are now in control of most parts of the strategic complex near the northern town of Baiji, situated some 190 kilometers (20 miles) from the capital, Baghdad.
