Newslink : Historic Iraq Sites Reclaimed in Mosul Offensive

in newslink •  3 years ago 

 A military offensive to take back  the city of Mosul, Iraq, from the terrorist group ISIL (also called  ISIS) has also resulted in the retaking of several historic sites that  ISIL destroyed and looted. 
 The offensive is being carried  out by the Iraq military and the Peshmerga, which is a Kurdish force  supported by Iraqi Kurdistan (an autonomous region of the country). Air  strikes by a coalition of countries are supporting these ground troops.  U.S. Special Forces are also on the ground and assisting in the  fighting. The forces have retaken outlying areas of Mosul, and ground  troops are making their way toward the center of the city.  [Photos: Restoring Life to Iraq's Ruined Artifacts
