Iraqi forces retake al-Najar district in Mosul

Iraqi forces have recaptured a new neighborhood in Mosul's right bank, security sources told The Baghdad post on Saturday.

Sources within 'We Are Coming, Nineveh' operations said, " Rapid Response Forces and Counter-Terrorism forces have managed to liberate al-Najjar district in the right bank of Mosul from ISIS terror group".

The source confirmed dozens of the terror group's elements had been killed in the operation.

Since February 19th, the 'We Are Coming, Nineveh' offensive has been launched to recapture the city's right bank.

The US-led international coalition is giving air covering for the Iraqi army's operations.

Mosul fell to ISIS in June 2014.
