Iraqi forces of Counter Terrorism Service (CTS) have retaken Tal Afar Citadel from ISIS, raising Iraqi flag over it, CTS spokesman Sabah al-Noman said Saturday.

He added that the joint forces have controlled Al Qadisiya Al Oula, Al Qadisiya Al Thaniya, and al-Rabie neighborhoods in Tal Afar.  

The offensive to recapture Tal Afar from ISIS terrorists started on Saturday amid support from US-led coalition. It is expected that the battle for retaking Tal Afar from ISIS grip will last for few weeks.
