Liberation of Iraq’s Tal Afar to Become Death Knell for Daesh – Shiite Militia
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Several foreign militants of Daesh terrorist group were killed as the Iraqi army and supporting militias continues their offensive to retake Daesh-held Tal Afar, the press service of Iraq's Shia militia (Hashd Shaabi) said Monday.

Tal Afar is the last major stronghold of Islamic State (Daesh) militants on the border between Iraq with Syria to the west of Mosul, which was liberated in early July.

"The shelling targeted several foreign militants including abu Youssef al-Roussi and Abu Youness al-Azri, who is a military leader within the group… A telecommunications center was destroyed and a member known as Saud Qablan was killed. Moreover, the soldiers department was destroyed," the press service said in a statement, as quoted by the Iraq News outlet.

Earlier in the day, the Iraqi armed forces and militia liberated five villages, gained control over a tunnel network dug by Daesh and killed 20 militants.

On Sunday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the beginning of the military offensive aimed at retaking Tal Afar, which is located 30 miles away from recently liberated Mosul.
