Nineveh governor, Nawfal Hamadi Al-Sultan said “the Iraqi security, tribal and anti-terrorism forces took full control of the air base after heavy clashes with ISIL insurgents,”

Al-Sultan added, “The terrorists fled towards Al-Qayara town after they came under the pro-government forces’ heavy attacks, and left their weapons and equipment at the base.”

“The pro-government forces have now deployed at the air base and plan to use it as a platform to launch military operations against ISIL in Mosul in the future,” he added.
