More than 25،000 ISIL militants were killed during the Mosul liberation operations، a military commander said Sunday. Anadolu Agency said.
More than 450 suicide bombers were killed and 1،247 vehicles – nearly 3،000 of which were rigged with bombs -- were also destroyed، campaign commander Lieut. Gen. Abdul Ameer Rasheed Yarallah said in a statement.
He said 130 combat drones were dropped.
Mosul was captured by ISIL that overran vast swathes of territory in northern and western Iraq in 2014.
The Iraqi army، backed by a U.S.-led air coalition، had been battling the terror group since October to dislodge it from Mosul، its last stronghold in northern Iraq.
Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi formally declared victory in Mosul on July 10.
