Iraq says it seizes Mosul Dam; militants deny it

Boosted by two days of US airstrikes, Iraqi and Kurdish forces on Monday wrested back control of the country's largest dam from Islamic militants, a military spokesman in Baghdad said, as fighting was reported to be underway for the rest of the strategic complex.

 

Soon after the news broke, the Islamic State group, which two weeks ago captured the Mosul Dam spanning the Tigris River just north of the city of Mosul, denied the claim, insisting it was still in control of the facility.

 

A US defense official in Washington confirmed the Islamic State group has not entirely lost control of the Mosul Dam. "It's not over," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing military operations.
