BAGHDAD —AlGhad— A ranking Iraqi officer declared today, Tuesday, according to several news agencies and media channels, that the terrorist group, ISIS, aka Daesh, controls on 6.8 per cent of Iraqi territories, down from nearly 40 per cent back in 2014.

Over the last several weeks, Iraqi forces have been engaged in a brutal battle to liberate Mosul, the last standing ISIS stronghold in Iraq.

Resistance in Mosul is intensified, which has caused the advancement of Iraqi forces to slow down.

No less than 1,200 suicide attacks were carried in Mosul alone, since government forces launched the liberation operation.
