Coalition Between US and Iraq to Retake the City of Mosul

2016-09-17 16:29:141 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Hundreds of US soldiers have arrived at an air base 40 miles south of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city and ISIS' last major stronghold in the country. As early as next month, the US plans to support Iraq's efforts to liberate and retake the city. On Friday near Mosul and Qayyarah, the US led the coalition to carry out four airstrikes, that destroyed eight ISIS fighting positions and a tunnel entrance. Over the weekend, Iraqi security forces air dropped thousands of leaflets south of the city, warning citizens in anticipation of the new offensive. Lieutenant General Jeffrey Harrigian, the commander of US air forces in the Middle East, said "There is still a tough fight ahead against an adaptive enemy that will try to challenge us as we hone in on Mosul."
