Meanwhile, Cap. Jabbar Hassan, from the Iraqi Federal Police service, told Anadolu Agency that forces managed on Friday to rescue more than 200 civilians who had been trapped inside five booby-trapped houses in Bab al-Beed neighborhood in the Old City. He said the rescue came after intense encounters with ISIS militants whom, he said, used the civilians as human shields Iraqi News reports.

Iraqi troops have advanced closer to the Old City’s Grand Nuri al-Kabir Mosque, where Islamic State’s supreme leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the establishment of the group’s rule in 2014. ISIS members blew up the mosque’s ancient minaret on Wednesday as troops advanced, a move which the Iraqi command said signaled an imminent defeat to the extremist group.

A few hundred militants are thought to remain inside the Old City, but are holding at least 100,000 civilians who are either shot dead or caught and executed if they attempt to flee the neighborhood.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in statements on Thursday that Mosul would be declared Islamic State-free within a few days.

That’s great news.
