Iraqi General: Most ISIS commanders exterminated in Mosul
A senior Iraqi general of the Counter-Terrorism Service has claimed to reporters on Thursday that most commanders of ISIS have been exterminated in the past three months with battles against Iraqi forces in Mosul.
The majority of ISIS commanders have been killed in the eastern side [of Mosul],” Lieutenant-General Abdul Ghani al-Assadi fsaid while touring the newly liberated districts in northern Mosul.
Assadi expressed his hope that in the coming days that all of Mosul east of the Tigris river will be liberated from ISIS, leaving only the western portion of the city under terrorist control.
“God willing, there will be an announcement in the next few days that all the eastern bank is under control,” Assadi added.
