The liberation of the Iraqi city of Mosul from control by the Islamic State group will likely come in a matter of "days," a US military spokesman said Thursday.

The official announcement will be made by the Iraqi government, said US Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the US-led anti-IS coalition.

"I can't put a timeline on that for them, but I see it closer to days than a week or weeks," he said.
