Video: Iraqi security forces push deep in Mosul's right bank

The Iraqi security forces have penetrated deep into the north of Al-Sihfa neighborhood where they have retaken the medical complex and the blood bank buildings, as shown in a video obtained by the Baghdad post Sunday.

About 19 ISIS terrorists have been killed, six booby trapped cars and four motorcycles have been destroyed, a security source said.

He added that the security sources are currently 100 meters away from the river bank and that there are other police units that have advanced to retake the al-Shifaa Hospital, Al- Mostashfa Al-Jamhori Republic Hospital, Specialized Pediatric Teaching Hospital, and College of Medicine from ISIS.

These efforts come as part of an offensive launched by US-backed security forces, supported by Iranian-backed sectarian IMIS Shiite militias to oust ISIS terrorists from Iraq.
