Abadi to declare recapture of Tal Afar, next areas of operations

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi will declare the full recapture of Tal Afar town before Eid al-Adha, a commander from joint operations said on Sunday.

He added that the operations to recapture western Anbar and Hawija will also be launched in the same time.

In a press statement, he said that the recapture announcement of Tal Afar will be very soon, as ISIS' defense lines were destroyed by the Iraqi forces' advance.

He further added that all the spectrum of military forces, including the Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) will soon meet with Abadi to decide the next operations areas.

This comes as the US-backed Iraqi security forces, supported by Iranian-backed Shiite militias launched "We Are Coming, Nineveh" operations to oust ISIS terrorists from Tal Afar, their last stronghold in Iraq.
