MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last week, Iraqi military command announced the start of a campaign to liberate the northern Nineveh province from Daesh militants, after it successfully regained control over several villages in the suburbs of its capital Mosul.

"Nineveh Liberation Operations Command foiled an attack by Daesh group on the units of the 15th Brigade [of the Iraqi Army] in a village… south of Mosul,” the Alsumaria television channel quoted the source as saying.

According to the source, 17 of the eliminated terrorists were suicide bombers.

Daesh, a terrorist group that is outlawed in Russia and the United States, among many other countries, took Mosul and some of its surrounding areas in June 2014.
