Iraqi Security Forces Pushing To Grand Nuri al-Kabir Mosque Where ISIS’ Baghdadi Declared “Islamic Caliphate” In 2014

On March 20, Iraqi security forces (ISF) resumed an advance in the direction of Mosul’s Grand Nuri al-Kabir Mosque where ISIS’ leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the “Islamic Caliphate” in 2014.

According to pro-government sources, ISF killed over 30 ISIS members and destroyed some 13 car bombs in the area.

If ISF troops regain the Grand Nuri al-Kabir Mosque in western Mosul, they will achieve a notable PR victory over the terrorists group.
