Last quote by John Dorrian

We believe that opening this new avenue of advance is the beginning of the end of ISIS in Mosul. The loss of Mosul is going to deeply damage ISIS prospects. It is the second largest city in Iraq. They had a tremendous amount of prestige and they have been able to collect a lot of taxes and money from the people of Mosul through their brutal control measures. So the loss of this territory is going to be a very big setback for ISIL.feedback
