Just finished security wrap up for June 2017 in Iraq. Violence is at lowest level seen in years across the country except for Ninewa due to Mosul battle. Here's a link.

From the footage on TV here most of Mosul looks wrecked, hardly a city ready for normal life and just who will rebuild it?

Via Twitter yesterday, from Ali Soufan, this report was recommended, although Robin Wright is to me an unknown quantity and she ends with:

In other words, a military rout of ISIS may only pave the way for the comeback of a more powerful Al Qaeda.

Other comments I have read have referred to the 40% loses to Iraqi national forces, presumably Army, Police and SOF. There has been little reporting on the PMU's activities for months.

One newsreel clip showed civilians leaving the last strongholds and for a short moment a soldier with a French flag on his uniform holding a small child. Other clips have shown what appear to be Iraqi soldiers with G3 rifles and the French Army's standard rifle (name lost).

The 40% losses was for the Counter-Terrorism Forces/Golden Division.
