WASHINGTON, DC – On Sunday, the Iraqi PM arrived in Mosul to formally declare victory, announcing the city had been recaptured from ISIS control.  As co-chairs of the Congressional Iraq Caucus, and as veterans who served in Iraq during their time in the military, Congressmen Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Seth Moulton (D-MA) issued this joint statement:

“After nearly nine months of battling against the Islamic State (ISIS), Iraq’s armed forces have reclaimed Mosul and achieved a significant victory in the war on terror. While this is certainly great news, we have a long road ahead in stabilizing and rebuilding Mosul, and helping the millions displaced return home.

“On behalf of the entire Congressional Iraq Caucus, we want to extend our congratulations and sincere gratitude to Iraq’s military, our coalition allied forces, and the Iraqi people on this triumph. This hard-fought campaign must continue as we enter the next phase in our strategy to defeat ISIS.  Advising and assisting Iraqis in maintaining a secure Mosul is how we can best work together to ensure a stronger and stabilized Iraq, and prevent the re-emergence of a successor to ISIS.”
