    Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi raises the national flag on July 10 as he addresses forces from a small base on the edge of Mosul's Old City, where heavy clashes have been underway for days. Al-Abadi returned to Mosul Monday and declared victory against the Daesh in the northern city following nine months of grueling urban combat.

    Iraqis took to the streets to celebrate the liberation of Mosul after Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi officially declared victory over the Daesh militant group on July 10.

    On July 9, fighters of the Iraqi Armed Forces' anti-terrorist unit raised a national flag on the banks of the Tigris River in the historical part of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, which had been under the militants' control for three years.
