In a message to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, Ahmed Jibril described the victory as one on the path of fighting against terrorism in Iraq, Syria and other Arab countries.

"We are all sure that Iraq, which has survived wars and attempts by the United States for domination on the country, will remain stable” with the help of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Syria and the forces of the resistance front, he said.

Jibril further expressed hope that it will be a step toward the "great victory”, namely the defeat of the main source of global terrorism, the Zionist regime of Israel.

Al-Abadi on Sunday announced final "victory” over the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in Mosul after eight months of combat against the extremists, which has left parts of the country’s second largest city in ruins.

"The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces (Prime Minister) Haider al-Abadi, arrived in the liberated city of Mosul and congratulated the heroic fighters and the Iraqi people on the great victory,” a statement from his office read on Sunday.

According to Iraqi sources, government authorities are planning a week of jubilation across the country after the formal declaration of victory in Mosul.

The recapture of Mosul, located some 400 kilometers (250 miles) north of the capital, Baghdad, would mark the effective end of Daesh in the Arab country.

Daesh Takfiris, cornered in a shrinking area of the city, had vowed to "fight to death.” The militants had resorted to sending veiled women bombers among the thousands of wounded, malnourished and fearful civilians, who were fleeing heavy clashes between government troops and the terrorists.
