Battle to take Mosul from ISIS can take longer than expected
The Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) commander had admitted that the battle to retake Mosul from ISIS can take a lot longer than initially anticipated.
“Those who believe that battle Mosul is going to end quickly are deluded,” Hadi al-Ameri, a senior PMU commander and secretary-general of Badr Organization, was seen stating during a televised interview on the battlefield in Mosul on Monday.
“The battle will last longer than expected, but will eventually see the city liberated from ISIS,” he added.
