Senior Daesh (banned in Russia) militants in the Iraqi city of Mosul have been eliminated by the Iraqi forces and do not have centralized command anymore, an Iraqi police official told on Wednesday.
“The majority of IS [Daesh] militants’ leaders have been eliminated and the rest of them fled. Presently they have second and third-level leaders left. According to our information they are weak leaders. They are distributed around the regions and they do not have centralized command,” Lt. Col. Imad Khalaf said.
Khalaf added that the militants had split into small groups of three or four people, including snipers and suicide bombers.
