Iraqi security forces are getting close to the main government complex in western Mosul in their offensive to dislodge ISIS from their last stronghold in the city, a military media officer said on Tuesday according to Reuters.
“The provincial council and the government building are within the firing range of the Rapid Response forces,” a media officer with the elite Interior Ministry units announced.
Since the Iraqi forces launched its operation to liberate western Mosul, the fighting units have made rapid advancements by expelling ISIS from Mosul airport, a military base, a major bridge and a handful of districts.
