Iraqi troops approached the center of Tal Afar, Iraq from both the east and the west in continued fighting against the Islamic State on Friday, August 25. Tal Afar is one of the last cities held by the Islamic State in Iraq. This footage from the local news source al-Mawsleya showed members of the Popular Mobilization Units in fighting near the al-Jazera neighborhood to the southeast of the city center. At 26:00, a sign above a building reads, “Islamic State, School, Saaed bin Maad al-Beneen” and it is one of two primary schools in the footage. A different video from the Popular Mobilization Unit showed their troops near a large silo to the west of the center of Tal Afar. Credit: YouTube/Al-Mawsleya via Storyful
