Iraqi forces have announced the recapture of a town in Kirkuk, northern Iraq, from ISIL, one of the group's last enclaves in the country.

“The Hawija district has been retaken from ISIL,” said a written statement on Thursday by Lt. Gen. Abdul Amir Yarullah.

Last Friday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the launch of the second phase of ongoing operations to retake Hawija.
