The US-led coalition fighting the ISIS terror group (banned in Russia) has established and closed several bases in Iraq built in support of the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), Operation Inherent Resolve spokesperson told on Friday.

Axar.az reports citing Sputnik.

On August 2, the broadcaster Rudaw reported that the Iraqi military had launched an operation to retake Tal Afar from ISIS. However, the Iraqi authorities have not yet confirmed the mission.

"The Coalition has established and closed several of these temporary posts throughout Iraq as we support the ISF [Iraqi Security Forces] in the fight against ISIS," the spokesperson said using the Arabic term for ISIS.

On Thursday, Turkish media reported that the United States was constructing a military base in northern part of Iraq in the vicinity of the city of Tal Afar.

"For operational purposes, we do not discuss locations of coalition forces. However, any temporary bases that are established are always in coordination with the government of Iraq and in support of Iraqi Security Forces," the spokesperson said when asked about the reports.

On July 26, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi pledged to liberate both the city of Tal Afar and the Al-Hawija district from ISIS in the same resolute manner that the city of Mosul was liberated earlier that month.
