Iraqi Army major offensive against ISIS
BAGHDAD: In Iraq, troops have retaken three more neighborhoods in the northern city of Mosul from the Islamic State militants.
Brigadier General, Haider Fadhil of the Special Forces has said that the troops have retaken Amn, Qahira and Green Apartments and were expanding their foothold in the densely populated district of Zohour.
The neighborhoods are all east of the Tigris River, where most of the fighting has taken place since the government’s campaign to liberate the city began last month. A US-led coalition is carrying out airstrikes to support the troops.
