State television has claimed Kurdish and Iraqi soldiers have pushed Islamic State fighters out of Mosul Dam.
The television station quotes a military spokesman as saying forces were back by joint air strikes, but did not give further details.
IS militants captured the strategic facility - which supplies electricity and water to large areas of the country - less than two weeks ago.
Kurdish Peshmerga fighters have emerged victorious in the battle for Mosul Dam, but the question is - what will their next move be?
An ITV News team at Mosul Dam was with victorious Kurdish Peshmerga fighters at the complex earlier today.
ITV News joined a Kurdish unit fighting Islamist militants near Irbil and found them using tanks from the 1950s and short on ammunition.
