Iraqi security forces have recaptured al-Jazeera area in eastern Tal Afar from ISIS terrorist group, a security source told the Baghdad Post on Thursday.

Federal Police forces are currently positioned about 250m away from Tal Afar centre.

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