Video: Iraqi Forces Celebrate Driving ISIS from Mosul
Iraqi soldiers celebrated in the streets of Mosul after the army said they had all but taken the city from ISIL.
They didn’t wait for a formal declaration of victory from the army: they partied on the banks of the Tigris all the same.
Dozens of militants from the so-called Islamic State were reported killed on Saturday, others tried to escape by swimming across the river.
“ISIL’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi said that he would not give Mosul back. Look: where are we standing now? We are in Mosul.
