Governor of Al-Qayyara Region has said that Iraq's joint military forces have recaptured all villages bordering al-Qayyara airbase in the Southern part of Nineveh.

A local provincial official announced that all villages bordering al Qayyara airbase in the Southern part of Nineveh have been seized back by Iraq's joint military forces.

Governor of Al Qayyara Region Saleh Hassan Ali reiterated that the road linking al-Qayyara airbase to Mosul has also been recaptured.

He noted that al-Qayyara-Mosul road is 30 kilometers, and said that the Iraqi forces are seizing back more ISIL-controlled areas.

In a relevant development in late July, the Iraqi army and popular forces continued their advances towards the Central parts of al Qayyara town as one of the most important ISIL bases in Southern Mosul.

As their latest achievement in Southern Mosul, the army purged the ISIL terrorists from al-Ausajah village near Haj Ali town of Qayyara region as the last ISIL base on the left side of Tigris river's Eastern coasts.

"After liberation of Haj Ali town, we should have liberated other strategic villages too, including the Eastern Ausajah and Western Ausajah villages, and we succeeded to take full control of them within some hours," General Emad al-Issawi said; FNA reported.
