On the same day, the Iraqi army and allied militias pushed on from Kirkuk and reclaimed areas around Mosul that had been occupied by Kurds after offensives against Islamic State. The Mosul Dam was among the positions reclaimed, army officials said. This video was shared by a local media outlet from Mosul.
