GRAPHIC VIDEO: Iraqi Army Removes Body of ISIS Militants Killed in Battle

Tue Jan 3, 2017 07:45:55

The Iraqi army entered Mosul's Quds neighborhood on Monday, to remove the bodies of members of the Islamic State terrorist group (ISIS / Daesh / ISIL) killed during an operation against the militants over the weekend.

Meanwhile, some residents of areas that were again under control of Iraqi forces have been allowed to return to their homes, soldiers said.

Since the Mosul operation started on 17 October, Iraqi forces have seized around a quarter of the city from ISIS militants.

Last week, troops resumed fighting after a two-week lull due to stiff resistance by the militants and bad weather.

Mosul is Iraq's second largest city and the last major urban area in the country controlled by ISIS.

Iraqi and US commanders hope to drive ISIS from the northern city in the next three months.
