Iraq PM asks IS to surrender or die

As troops encircle Mosul

The Prime Minister of Iraq has urged the Islamic State Group to surrender as government troops close in on its last urban stronghold in the country, Mosul.

Haider Al-Abadi appeared on state TV wearing combat fatigues and said: “they have no choice. Either they surrender or they die.”

Iraqi Special Forces are now about one kilometre away from Mosul’s eastern edge and preparing to enter.

It is unclear when the final offensive on Mosul will begin, and resistance from is in the city has intensified.

About 50,000 Iraqi Security Forces Personnel, Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, Sunni Arab tribesmen and Shia Militiamen are involved in the offensive, which began more than two weeks ago, to drive is militants out of their last major urban stronghold in the country.

Mosul fell to the jihadists in June 2014 and their leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, chose a mosque in the city as a place to proclaim the establishment of a “Caliphate”.
