Iraq’s premier said on Tuesday security forces need another three months to eliminate ISIL from the country after launching their offensive against the terrorist group in October.

“The available data indicate that Iraq requires three months to eliminate ISIL,” Haidar al-Abadi told a televised news conference.

Since the offensive began on October 17, elite Iraqi forces have re-conquered several parts of eastern Mosul and are moving closer to the Tigris, the river that divides the city, but ISIL still occupies the city’s west.
