TEHRAN, Jul. 10 (Press Shia) – Iran’s Defense Minister General Hossein Dehghan in two separate messages, congratulated Mosul’s complete liberation to his Iraqi counterpart and the top commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Forces’ (PMF).
“The good news about the complete freedom of Mosul from the dirty hands of the ISIL terrorist group, made happy the hearts of all the supporters of the stability, peace and security in Iraq, especially the people, the government and the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Dehghan wrote in his message to the top commander of Iraq’s People’s Mobilization Forces (PMF) Hadi al-Ameri on Sunday.
He expressed hope that during the post-ISIL period, all armed forces and people in Iraq maintain jihadist spirit, unity and solidarity, so that we will see the sustained security and the growth and prosperity of our friend and brother country in all areas.
Dehghan also felicitated the great victory to his Iraqi counterpart Khaled Yassin al-Obaidi, saying “I am firmly convinced that the collapse and destruction of terrorism will not be possible except with the true will of the governments and the formation of united fronts against terrorism; this great victory, which has led to the neutralization of US plots and the Zionist regime in Iraq, was a complete defeat of proxy war strategy in the region.”
The prime minister of Iraq on Sunday announced final victory over ISIL Takfiri terrorist group in Mosul after eight months of combat against the extremists, which has left parts of the country’s second largest city in ruins.
