The Iraqi federal police liberated one of the last remaining neighborhoods of Mosul, Zanjili, from Daesh terrorist group, police chief Lt. Gen. Raed Shaker Jawdat said Saturday.

The police chief added that policemen found a terrorist workshop for manufacturing of rockets and a significant amount of explosives.

Daesh terrorist group took over Mosul in June 2014, while the operation aimed at liberating the city from the terrorists started in October 2016.

The Iraqi and US-led coalition forces in late January gained control over the eastern part of the city and in February began the operation to liberate western part of Mosul. The Iraqi army said that it had gained control over two-thirds of the western part so far.
