BasNews quoted Brig. Gen. Mohamed al-Jubouri, from the Interior Ministry’s Rapid Response forces, saying that the troops repelled a fierce attack by IS militants who used 20 booby-trapped vehicles. Twelve militants were killed in the attack which targeted troops at Tamuz, Mesherfa, Najjar and al-Rifaie neighborhoods.

Mohamed Jassem, a police officer from Mosul, also told BasNews that five police officers were killed and eight others were wounded Thursday when drones guided by Is militants bombed their deployment in al-Marir village, south of the city.

Mohamed Mostafa at Iraqi News reports that the Iraqi Joint Operations Command said Tuesday its forces took over 89.5 percent of territories in western Mosul, adding it had killed more than 16000 militants since the launch of Mosul operations in October.

Iraqi government forces are eyeing the ancient, densely structured and populated Old City, the place where Islamic State’s supreme leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the establishment of an “Islamic Caliphate” in 2014. Troops besieged the area for weeks from the south, but turned to the northwestern axis to invade the city earlier this month. IS fighters are believed to have been holding hundreds of thousands at that area as human shields.

Earlier America’s Freedom Fighters reported that Iraqi forces killed at least 173 ISIS jihadists on Monday, during the offensive aimed at liberation of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Iraqi forces killed at least 173 jihadists from the Islamic State (Daesh) terrorist group on Monday local media reported, citing the head of federal police.

Iraq’s anti-terrorism units on Monday have stormed Al-Oraibi and Al-Rifa’i neighborhoods where heavy clashes are still taking place. The country’s “Quick Reaction Force” as well as the Iraqi Army’s 9th Division also entered Al-Iqtisadiyeen neighborhood and the southern and northern parts of the area, considered to be the most dangerous ISIS stronghold.

“We have destroyed 40 booby-trapped cars and killed 173 from ISIS, among them one leader,” the head of federal police said.

Sources also said that 60 ISIS militants have left with their families from neighborhood amid the ensuing commotion and clashes.

Hours after storming the neighborhoods, the Iraqi forces evacuated more than 4,000 civilians despite heavy clashes between them and ISIS.

Only a couple of ISIS-controlled neighborhoods are left after 210 days since the start of operation to liberate the northern Iraq city of Mosul.

Just yesterday, AFF reported that ISIS militants killed at least 64 civilians, including women and children, while trying to flee battles with Iraqi security forces in western Mosul to the eastern side.

The Iraqi Observatory for Human Rights said the civilians were trying to cross the Tigris River, which divides the city, to the eastern side which Iraqi forces took over in January, but were shot dead by ISIS snipers.

The ISIS terrorists also took civilian prisoners according some of the survivors off the attack.

They said more than 40 families were trying to cross the river, but at least 64 dead bodies washed ashore.

The observatory quoted a security source in Sallamiya that the corpses bore signs of gunshots, and that he was predicting more dead bodies to resurface, Iraqi News reports.

Earlier on Sunday, BasNews quoted Ahmed al-Obaidi, a Federal Police Captain, saying that ISIS militants had shot dead 16 Iraqi women who were trying to flee al-Rifaie district in western Mosul, adding that 30 other families in the same district.

The Iraqi government and United Nations counts put the number of Iraqis displaced since the launch of the offensive to retake Mosul from IS in October 2016 at at least 600,000. Nineveh municipal officials say there are 600,000 others who fled to relatives or rented residences and therefore had not been registered.

Daesh (ISIS) has faced accusations by the U.N., Iraqi government and aid agencies of using civilians as human shields. Concerns for civilian lives had been a major reason behind occasional slowdowns of security operations and unfortunately some have been killed in operations by Iraqi forces and the allied U.S.-led coalition.

The militants have now been eradicated from all but a handful of areas in the western half of Mosul including the Old City, where Islamic State is expected to make its last stand, taking advantage of narrow streets and its dense population.

Brigadier General Yahya Rasoul said the area controlled by ISIS was no more than 9 percent of west Mosul.

Iraqi commanders predict Mosul could be retaken before the end of this month.

It looks like Mosul will be cleansed of these ISIS savages soon, however, the damage, destruction and terror that they have put these innocent people will last for eternity.

God Bless. SourceAFF
