ISIS is losing territory, but state officials warned that they are still militants at large, according to the Washington Post. 

Iraqi  and U.S forces are driving them back. Iraqi troops are forcing the Islamic State to surrender, but some battles remain  for ultimate supremacy.  Iraq security forces recently reclaimed  the city of Mosul and Tal Afar.

The Shitte military groups surrounded Mosul and Tal Afar while U.S military forces led several airstrikes, pounding weapon facilities, while ground operations  have begun.

Brig. Gen. Halgurd Hikmet said to the Washington Post,“We have forces ready for Hawija, but so far there are no orders, and we don’t know if we will participate.”

There are between 5,000 to 10,000 militants in the area, according to a Pentagon assessment.
