Government forces backed by Kurds and the U.S. drive ISIS out of Iraq

Announcement Date: November 1, 2017

Government forces in coalition with Shia, Kurds, and U.S. allies drive the Islamic State from all major cities, leaving them with only small, temporary military camps. Kurds and the government forces work together for a brief time to combat skirmishes in the last Kurdish-held area in the oil-rich Kirkuk province.
