The Iraqi Army, backed by local committees, began their important offensive to liberate the key town of Al-Qiyyarah from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Nineveh Governorate.

Striking the terrorist group from the south, the Iraqi Army was able to take control of two villages at Al-Qiyyarah’s southern flank, including ‘Ajaban and Zuhiliyah

‏Following the liberation of these villages, the Iraqi Armed Forces continued their push north towards Al-Qiyyarah, killing several members of the Islamic State before nightfall ok Saturday night.

Al-Qiyyarah is strategically located along the main highway linking both the Iraqi capital of Baghdad and Mosul (provincial capital of Nineveh); its capture by the Iraqi Armed Forces would be devastating for the Islamic State, as they have enjoyed a large buffer-zone to the south of Mosul for over two years.
