Reaching Mosul caps turnaround for Iraqi special forcesTwo years after they withdrew from Mosul broken and defeated, Iraqi forces have capped a dramatic turnaround by reaching the largest city they lost to Daesh (ISIS). Just over two weeks into a massive offensive to retake Mosul from Daesh, Iraqi army and special forces personnel have reached its outskirts for the first time since 2014 .Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has also sacked a number of Iraqi military officers since taking office in 2014, clearing the way for more competent commanders to take command.
