3276523186

Iraqi special forces began their assault into more urban neighborhoods of Mosul from its easternmost district.


The advance began with artillery and mortar strikes on the Aden, Tahrir and Quds districts, just west of special forces footholds in the Gogjali and Karama neighborhoods.

The Islamic State group is fighting to hold Iraq’s second city of Mosul as Iraqi forces and allied Kurdish troops squeeze in from all directions with US-led coalition support, mostly with airstrikes and reconnaissance.
