Iraqi forces liberate Tal Afar city from Islamic State

Iraqi forces have retaken Tal Afar city from the Islamic State in northwest Iraq, the Iraqi military said Sunday.

After just eight days of fighting, all 29 neighborhoods in Tal Afar city have been taken back from the militant group. Iraqi forces have retaken almost all of the Tal Afar region, but fighting continues in al-'Ayadiya, a small area northwest of the city, where the IS is hiding out.
