The PMU media wing also announced that Iraqi forces have killed 31 ISIS fighters while Iraqi warplanes have destroyed 9 VBIEDs of ISIS. Iraqi forces have also destroyed 4 mortar positions of ISIS.

Moreover, military engineers of the Iraqi Army and the PMU started clearing the liberated areas from IEDs and mines left behind by ISIS fighters.

The ISIS-linked Amaq news agency claimed that 14 vehicles of the PMU were destroyed with 2 VBIEDs attacks by ISIS near al-Jabarah village west of Tal Afar on Sunday.

If the Iraqi forces continues to advance at this rate, than Tal Afar operation might end within few weeks.

    And 2000 ISIS left around Tel Afar? I sort of doubt it.
    This is US stated BS, maybe cut that number in half.
    But still will be a tough fight for the city. I wish the Iraqis well.
    They will also have to watch out for those US coalition airstrikes!
