ISIL NOW CONTROL LESS THAN 7% OF IRAQ

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group now controls less than seven percent of Iraq, down from the 40 percent it held nearly three years ago, an Iraqi military spokesman has said.

Various members of the forces, Iraqi and foreign, battling ISIL have disagreed in the past on figures about control of territory, but ISIL has been losing ground steadily for close to two years.

Its reach in Iraq peaked in August the same year when a second offensive saw it take over areas of northern Iraq that were home to various minorities and had been under the control of forces from the country’s autonomous Kurdish region’s forces.
