Federal police on Monday said the forces are advancing on al-Nuri district in Mosul, in a push to liberate the last stronghold held by ISIS terror group.
In a statement, the commander of the federal police Gen. Raid Shaker Jawdat said that the iraqi forces have completely liberated Zanjili district, raising iraqi flag over its buildings.
The forces are pushing to liberate al-Shifaa hospital, and tighten its grip on the northern terror pockets in the northern parts of the Old City of Mosul.
The battle is proceeding according to the field tactics developed by the operations' command, Jawdat said, noting that crushing the terror group of ISIS is merely a matter of time.
These efforts come as part of an offensive launched on 19th of February by US-backed security forces, supported by Iranian-backed sectarian IMIS Shiite militias to oust ISIS terrorists from Mosul, their last major stronghold in Iraq.
