Prime Minister Abadi says Iraqi soldiers are the ones who defended human rights and sacrificed themselves to free and save civilians. He says organizations​​ (referring to Amnesty International)​​ should check their sources and see how​​ happy​​ the people of Mosul​​ are​​ with the liberation. He also says the terrorists will not avoid punishment and there will be no amnesty for the killers. He says he​​ is surprised that some people are “sad and weeping” while Iraqi people are happy that Mosul has returned. He asks “where were these organizations when Daesh used to kill the people of Mosul?” [Anadolu] [Hurra]​​
