"Iraqi forces pushed deep into the last remaining urban stronghold controlled by Islamic State in Iraq on Thursday, capturing the compound of a key mosque in Mosul's Old City where the extremists' leader three years ago had called on all Muslims to obey him.

Overrunning the site of the Al Nuri Mosque marks "the end of Da'esh's false state," Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi said on Twitter, using Islamic State's Arabic acronym. "We will pursue every last Da'esh fighter in Iraq."

Though Islamic State blew up the mosque on June 22, reclaiming the area is of both symbolic and strategic importance because it was there that Islamic State's leader -- Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi -- made his first speech as self-proclaimed caliph in 2014.

Most of their key players have already moved out of the area in the last few months, to Afghanistan, Libya and to cells in other places where they can continue doing what they do..

What remains in Syria and Iraq is just their rear guard, which is simply buying them time to re-settle elsewhere.
