IRAQI PM WARNS WORLD OF INACTION IN FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISM

Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi, warned the world not to relax in fighting terrorism of the Daesh group and the tracking of its terrorists.

He added, Iraq has suggested a draft resolution to the United Nations Security Council, to pursue terrorism.

Abadi said, after his weekly cabinet meeting, that, the draft resolution is aimed to prosecute terrorism and those associated and collaborated with the Daesh, because "the terrorists will return to other areas in a new cover."

Abadi also said that it is necessary to pursue sources of recruitment and funding of the Daesh.

Abadi's comments came, after he officially declared Mosul's liberation, on July 10 from the Daesh, after nearly nine months of fierce fighting, to dislodge the extremist militants from their last major stronghold in Iraq.

As for the upcoming offensive, to liberate the Daesh-held town of Tal Afar, some 70 km west of Mosul, Abadi said, "There are regular air strikes targeting the militants, in preparation to liberate the areas under control of the Daesh group, including Tal Afar."

The offensive to free Tal Afar will be launched soon, with the participation of all kinds of security forces, including the predominantly Shiite paramilitary Hashd Shaabi units, and Sunni tribal fighters, according to Abadi
