Security forces have recaptured Musheirafa village located west of al-Mahlabiya neighborhood in eastern Tal Afar from ISIS terrorists, a security source told The Baghdad Post on Friday.

The source said that units of the Federal Police liberated the village following fierce clashes with ISIS terrorists.

On Thursday, Iraqi security forces recaptured al-Jazeera neighborhood in Tal Afar from ISIS terrorists.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Iraqi security forces launched on Sunday an offensive to take back the city of Tal Afar, their next objective in the US-backed campaign to defeat ISIS terrorists.

"You either surrender, or die," Abadi said in a televised speech announcing the offensive, addressing the terrorists.

Tal Afar, 80 km west of Mosul, was cut off from the rest of ISIS-held territory in June
