Islamic State (IS) militants in Mosul are reportedly holding celebrations to observe the first anniversary of their capture of Iraq’s second largest city.

Images have emerged showing the terror group’s black flags hung at the top of every lamp post in one of the main streets. Posters and decorations have also been put up on important buildings, reported the BBC.

The victory over Mosul last year prompted the terror outfit to launch a massive offensive that saw it seizing large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria.
