    The US-led international coalition's air force has eliminated 58 Daesh terrorists in and around the Iraqi city of Mosul over the past 24 hours, the Iraqi Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

    MOSUL (Sputnik) – According to the ministry, the coalition conducted airstrikes to support an Iraqi ground offensive, inflicting casualties among the terrorists and destroying their military equipment, including some cars, packed with explosives.

    The Iraqi operation to liberate Mosul from terrorists has been ongoing since October 17. The battle for the city began with 4,000 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and 30,000 Iraqi soldiers backed by the US-led coalition advancing on the city from the east, west and south.

    Mosul has been occupied by Daesh since 2014.
