Iraqi military and volunteer forces have reached the center of a strategic town near the Daesh stronghold of Mosul.

Iraqi army troops and pro-government volunteers on Thursday seized the center of Shirqat, a key town located 100 km south of Mosul, a source with the Iraqi Joint Operations Command in Salahuddin Province said.

The Arabic-language al-Sumeria television said Iraqi troops had taken control of the governor’s office in the town and hoisted the Iraqi flag over the building.
