The British government welcomed, on Sunday, the successes of the Iraqi forces, against the Daesh militants, in the northern city of Mosul.
In a press release, Defence Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon, said that, he congratulated the Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider Abadi, and the Iraqi forces, who have been fighting on the ground with great bravery, and care, against a brutal opponent.
"Daesh has total disregard for innocent civilian life, and we should welcome their defeat, in a city that was ground zero, for their so-called caliphate," Fallon added.
Britain has played a leading role in the Coalition, that has helped bring about the removal of the death cult from Mosul.
British Royal Air force (RAF) has struck more than 750 targets, as part of the campaign to liberate Mosul, second only to the United States.
"While these pin-point strikes have brought an end to the Daesh in the city, there is still more to do," the minister noted.
"This barbaric group remains dug in the west of the Euphrates and clearing operations, in and around Mosul will be needed, because of the threat from improvised explosive devices," Fallon concluded
