Iraqi forces launch powerful offensive against ISIS in new Mosul districts

 

Earlier today, Iraqi forces have launched a powerful assault against ISIS new areas of western Mosul that they have not entered since 2014.

The focus of this new offensive is on the Rajm Al-Hadid and Wadi Al-‘Ain districts.

This comes as a Pentagon press operations director, Navy Captain Jeff Davis, announced that Iraqi forces are rapidly advancing towards the Iron Bride near the old city of Mosul where battles with ISIS are intensifying,

He then went onto explain the difficulty of new advances in western Mosul by stating: “Clearly ISIS has had a lot of time to dig in and place house-borne [homemade bombs], sniper positions, tunnels and other things they can do to make this very challenging.”
