Iraqis celebrate Mosul liberation with military parade

Iraqis celebrate Mosul liberation with military paradeā€

Iraqi police displayed 23 vehicles that had been turned into auto bombs and also an anti-aircraft gun, all captured from Islamic State militants during the battle for the city of Mosul.

Last week, Iraq declared the complete liberation of Mosul some three years after the northern city fell to Daesh terrorists.

The group of women, who were arrested on Thursday, included citizens of Germany (five), Russian Federation (three), Turkey (three), Canada (two), Chechnya (one) and from Libya and Syria (six in total), according to al-Araji.

The eastern part of Mosul, recovered by Iraqi troops earlier this year, has welcomed numerous new displaced by the fighting, after Iraqi prime minister Haider al-Abadi announced its end four days ago.

For centuries, Mosul's Old City stood as neighborhood of densely built alleyways, homes facing each other across narrow and winding lanes.

Army, police and fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units, commonly known by their Arabic name Hashd al-Sha'abi, took part in the Saturday parade which was held in the capital Baghdad.

Operations backed by the US-led coalition against Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria since late 2014 have pushed the militants out of much of the territory it once controlled.

The Iraqi operation to recapture Mosul, the key stronghold of ISIL terrorist group, banned in Russian Federation and many other countries, began on October 2016.
