Iraqi forces liberated 14 villages in a Mosul neighborhood from Daesh during the first day of the military operation to retake the western part of the city, Lt. Gen. Abdul Amir Rashid Yarallah, the commander of the operation, said.

CAIRO (Sputnik) — On Sunday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the start of the operations to liberate the western part of Mosul from Daesh militants.

According to the statement of the operation command, the Iraqi forces have also managed to take control of the main power station, which supplies the Mosul's entire western bank with electricity.

The Iraqi army, the federal police, the elite Quick Response Units and the mainly Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi forces are taking part at the joint operation to liberate western Mosul, according to media reports.
