The forces also retook the city’s medicine college on Monday as they continued to gain more grounds against the IS militants.
According to the Iraqi military, nearly 40 militants with the extremist group were killed in separate operations in the strategic city.
The Iraqi forces also announced that they have raised the national flag on top of Tikrit’s main hospital and an administrative building.
