ISIS on the run, will soon be wiped out: US Prez

| | WASHINGTON

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the ISIS was “on the run” and will soon be “wiped out” of Syria and Iraq, days after the Iraqi forces with the help of the US-led international coalition re-took Mosul from the terror group.

Iraq has declared victory over the ISIS  in Mosul, retaking full control of the country’s second-largest city three years after it was seized by the terror group. “ISIS is on the run and will soon be wiped out of Syria and Iraq, illegal border crossings are way down (75 per cent) and MS 13 (Mara Salvatrucha) gangs are being removed,” Trump tweeted.

The US President had on Tuesday spoken with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and congratulated him on “the liberation of Mosul” by Iraqi security forces. He said that the development marked a major milestone in the fight against ISIS.

“The President praised the heroism of the Iraqi and American soldiers and underscored his commitment to the total defeat of ISIS,” the White House said in a statement.
