    Iraqi troops have retaken a village to the east of Mosul from Daesh.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Iraqi military liberated village Abbas Rajab to the east of Mosul from Daesh terrorists, Lt. Gen. Abdulamir Yaralla, commander of the operation, said on Thursday.

    "The forces of the 35th and 37th brigades liberated Abbas Rajab village and raised Iraqi flags on the buildings," Yaralla was quoted as saying by Alsumaria TV channel.
