Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced their victory against the ISIS last Sunday July 9, 2017. The prime minister arrived in Mosul Sunday to announce victory over ISIS forces in the city. According to the prime minister battle is settled and the remaining pockets of ISIS are encircled in the last inches of the city.
The Iraqi military is fighting to free civilians whom ISIS is using as human shields. The Iraqi troops moved slowly along foot paths strewn with rubble, twisted metal and downed power lines. And as the night began Iraqi forces began a push deeper into Mosul’s Old City, where ISIS fighters were making their last stand. Mosul is the biggest city considered as their metropolis. Gaining control of the city was one of ISIS biggest military strategy against the government.

The group Isis caused plague to the city and beheaded people in public, threw gay men to their deaths from the top of buildings and made prisoners out of men who did not grow beards and women who did not wear Islamic clothing such as burqas. The city was considered one of the main entry points for foreign fighters coming into the country.
