Iraqi airstrike kills 6 senior Daesh figures in Mosul
Iraqi airstrikes have killed six senior Daesh figures in Mosul, local media said Sunday.
Iraqi troops and pro-government militias are closing in on the remaining Daesh enclave in west Mosul months after starting the operation to liberate the city from terrorists. The eastern part of the city was liberated by the Iraqi troops, backed by the US-led international coalition, in January, with the advance on west Mosul starting in February.
Daesh terrorists took over Mosul in June 2014 after invading from neighboring war-torn Syria.
