Iraq announced Monday that it has recaptured the city of Mosul and driven out ISIS fighters.
The victory capped a nine-month-long battle that saw much of northern Iraqi city destroyed. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the victory is a "critical milestone" in the global fight against the terrorist group, and ISIS is believed to have been significantly weakened by the defeat. What’s next for ISIS? How would the city of Mosul rebuild?
In addition, a human rights group in Syria is reporting that ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has been killed. The news has not been confirmed by the U.S.
