Iraqi Jets Kill 116 IS Militants in Mosul Bombing; Iraqi Gen.:Beginning of True Liberation of Mosul

Iraqi fighter jets killed 116 Islamic State (IS) group fighters during bombing raids on the IS-stronghold city of Mosul yesterday, including 67 who were at a meeting in a hotel swimming pool that has been described as the terrorist group's "war room," the Vice News website reports today (November 2, 2016).

Details of the attacks were provided by the Kurdish news outlet, Rudaw.

The air attacks came on the same day that Iraqi special forces entered Mosul -- Iraq's second largest city -- for the first time in over two years.

"Now is the beginning of the true liberation of the city of Mosul," Staff General Taleb Shegnati al-Kenani, commander of the Iraqi special forces, said on Iraqiya state TV, which is located in a building that Iraqi troops took control of as they began their offensive to retake Mosul.
