Anti-ISIS intl. coalition’s battalion arrives in east Mosul

US forces in Iraq
An artillery battalion of the US-led international coalition against ISIS has arrived to Makhmur District in Erbil Governorate in Northern Iraq, a member of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) stated on Friday.

The battalion arrived at the disputed district between Erbil and Baghdad, southeast of Mosul, and stationed at its former positions that it had left in the past, PUK's Rashad Kalali said.

The return of the US forces comes amid the abrupt decision of US President Donald Trump of withdrawing the US troops from Syria and Afghanistan, which raised international concerns from the return of ISIS threat to the liberated spots in Syria and Iraq.
