Military operations to liberate Iraq from the so-called Islamic State extremist group will be coming to an end “in the rather short foreseeable future,” the U.N. envoy to Iraq said Thursday.

Jan Kubis told the U.N. Security Council “the days of the so-called ISIS are counted”.

 

Iraqi forces have pushed ISIS out of nearly all the cities and towns the group once held in Iraq. Mosul is the last major urban centre it holds in that country, and government forces have retaken the eastern half of the city since the operation was officially launched in October.
