Iraq says war against ISIS is over

Iraq said Saturday that its war on the ISIS is over after more than three years of combat operations drove the extremists from all of the territory they once held.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally announced the victory in an address to the nation aired on Iraqi state television, saying the liberation dream has become a reality despite difficult circumstances.

The US applauded the end of barbarous acts by ISIS. UK Prime Minister Theresa May congratulated Iraqis on this historic moment but she warned that ISIS is not yet defeated.
