UNSC Report: Mosul battle still not over

August 13, 2017

Even after the Iraqi town of Mosul was formally declared liberated after years as an ISIS bastion, a report submitted to the UN Security Council this weekend determined that the Islamic State, even after grave punishment, is still dangerous.

Its command center and fighting capacity are still in place and effective. Its fighters continue to resist the Iraqi army from parts of Mosul still under their control and their workshops continue to turn out weapons.
