Iraqi Forces Seize ISIL’s Children Military Training Center in Nineveh Province
The Iraqi military forces found a tunnel in al-Hamdaniyeh town to the Southeast of Mosul that was used by the ISIL to teach children how to carry out terrorist attacks on government forces. The kids in the centers were called by ISIL as lions of Caliphate and Diwan al-Jund (the Army Organization).
The Iraqi forces found several painting notebooks in the center showing how ISIL was working on children’s psychology.
One of the paintings shows two helicopters of the international coalition flying over Nineveh and its capital of Mosul city and in another painting a helicopter is flying near the grand mosque, and another one flying a little farther away from the mosque with ISIL’s flag hoisting above mosque.
Another painting shows a scene of clashes between ISIL and the Kurdish fighters. Two masked ISIL terrorists are fighting the Kurdish combatants in the painting.
Reports said earlier today that the Iraqi government forces registered more territorial gains in Mosul as they are battling in joint operations with volunteer fighters and other allies to push ISIL terrorists out of their last urban stronghold in the Arab country.
Commander of Nineveh Liberation Operation, Lieutenant General Abdul Amir Yarallah, said that the 9th Armored Division and the 3rd Brigade of the First Division in the Iraqi Army had freed al-Qousiyat village on the outskirts of Mosul, located some 400 kilometers North of the capital Baghdad, and hoisted the national flag over several buildings there, press tv reported.
The high-profile Iraqi military commander added that government forces had inflicted heavy losses on ISIL ranks and military equipment during the operation as well.
