Iraqi fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units have managed to regain control over nine villages west of Mosul as they engage in joint military operations with army troops to purge Takfiri Daesh terrorists out of their last urban bastion in the Arab country.

A media bureau announced in a statement that the pro-government forces, commonly known by the Arabic name Hashd al-Sha’abi, or PMU, had established full control over the villages of Be’r al-Osaibei, Aliyah and Sharji al-Rawi northwest of the mainly Shia-populated town of al-Ba'aj.

The statement added that the PMU had also recaptured the villages of Hamd al-Madloul, Marzoukah, Touman, Raqbah al-Fores, Khirbet al-Arizah and Tale’ah al-Markab.

Meanwhile, Captain Abdul-Wadoud al-Anbari told Shafaaq news agency that members of the Interior Ministry's elite rapid response forces and Army’s 9th Division had killed 21 militants, including five snipers, during a counter-attack in Shifa neighborhood of western Mosul.
