Abadi to announce liberation of Old City of Mosul soon
The Iraqi prime minister Haider al-Abadi will give a speech soon to announce the liberation of the entire Old City of Mosul, high ranking security sources said on Sunday.

The Iraqi forces will control the Old City of Mosul in few hours as the ISIS' defenses are breaking down, The Iraqi Joint Command Operation said.

The air strikes and the artillery shells are currently bombarding the last ISIS stronghold in the city.

The Iraqi soldiers have celebrated the major victory and danced without waiting for the official declaration of the victory to come out. 

Iraqi forces have been battling the terror group of ISIS in the right bank of the city since February 19th with the aid of the US-led coalition after freeing the eastern bank of the war-shattered city.

On June 29th, Mosul has been officially declared as 'ISIS-free'.
