Iraqi forces advance towards ISIS-held air base south of Mosul

An Iraqi army tank is seen in Fallujah, 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the capital Baghdad, after Iraqi forces retook the embattled city from the Islamic State group on June 26, 2016. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi urged all Iraqis to celebrate the recapture of Fallujah by the security forces and vowed the national flag would be raised in Mosul soon.
