Mosul

Baghdad officials say ISIL insurgents have killed a senior Iraqi commander near the ISIL-held northern city of Mosul.
The Iraqi Defense Ministry said Brigadier Ahmad Badr al-Luhaibi was killed by a sniper during an operation to retake a village south of Mosul.

In a statement issued late on June 14, the ministry praised Luhaibi as a “knight” and said his death would “increase our determination to clear” all IS forces from Nineveh Province, of which Mosul is the capital.
