Iraqi forces storm al-Shifa, al-Zangli districts in Mosul

Iraqi forces have stormed al-Shifa and al-Zangli districts in the northern axis of Mosul city, a source said in Thursday.

The source added that clashes continue accompanied by heavy aerial bombardment on ISIS terrorists' hotbeds.

Security forces, backed by International Coalition air raids and logistic support of the US army, have retaken eastern Mosul and half of its western part after six months of battles.

It is estimated that there are a few of ISIS terrorists left in the second largest city of Iraq. It is expected that they will desperately defend the last pocket of the city that has been once their main stronghold in Iraq.
