The Iraqi army announced Sunday the complete capture of ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, 30 kilometres south of Mosul.

“Troops from the Ninth Armoured Division liberated Nimrud town completely and raised the Iraqi flag above its buildings.”

Daesh had destroyed and demolished large part of the 3,000-year old archaeological monuments in 2015.
