Iraq: Regime forces retake Mosul airport

Source: CNN

“Iraqi forces have regained control of the airport in Mosul, part of a months-long operation to push ISIS militants from the city. The airport — largely destroyed by ISIS forces — is now fully under Iraqi Federal Police control, said Col. Abdel Amir Mohamed, commander of the Rapid Response Unit of the Federal Police. Forces launched a new bid to take the western areas of the city from the militant group on Sunday after declaring in late January that the east had been liberated.” (02/23/17)
