The US has built a military base near Iraq’s northwestern Tal Afar city for operations to recapture the city from the Daesh terrorist group.
“The establishment of the base came upon talks held between US and Iraqi forces Friday in Mosul’s Zammar district,” Lt. Col. Mahdi al-Khafaji told Anadolu Agency Wednesday.
The technical teams have completed more than 50% of their work at the base, Mahdi al-Khafaji added.
The military base is supposed to be used for planned operations to recapture Tal Afar from Daesh terrorist group. "US special forces and advisers have been deployed at the base," he confirmed. Iraqi forces have been preparing to launch an offensive to capture Tal Afar from Daesh after defeating the terrorist group in Mosul last month.
Tal Afar has remained a Daesh stronghold since the terrorist group overran vast territories in northern and western Iraq in mid-2014.
