مطلع إبريل... موعد جديد لإعلان استعادة الموصل

Through loudspeakers installed on the giant military Hummer vehicles, the Iraqi army began at dawn on Wednesday directed his appeals to the population Balzom homes and raise white flags above as well as its demand for the fighters of the “Islamic State” (Daesh) surrender. The army support this method to communicate and transmit the messages because the area controlled by the militants, “Daesh” no longer require throwing leaflets in its space, and has become the sound can be up to all those besieged areas completely from all directions. It is reform and Oraibi neighborhoods and Hermat and July and the container church and Mushayrifa and Industry and the gate of the Levant, and Zndjeli NAHRAWAN and Rifai and Yarmouk, which are all located in the northwestern part of the right coast of Mosul.
And it gained the fighting during the past few hours character meaner, since moving fighters on both sides of the house to house and street to the alley in an apparent guerrilla war, but fought using heavy weapons instead of the medium, contrary to what was announced, military officials in Baghdad, a few days ago. And I saw neighborhoods of Nablus and the Valley of the eye and the message of violent battles, while renewed clashes inside the old Mosul after a lull continued throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Iraqi military officials confirmed that the majority of the elements of the organization “Daesh” chose to stay and fight because they are suicide bombers, and Arab and Asian nationalities. The commander of Nineveh operations, Major General Najim al-Jubouri, for “new Arab”, “The members Daesh no longer in front of them only lay down their arms or fight to the death by fire of our troops or blow themselves up,” as he put it. And that “the battle in terms of the process is over and there is no such thing as the capital of the caliphate in Mosul.” He explained that the segments of the Iraqi security forces now stands for tens of meters away from the western edge of the old bridge, which connects the center of the old area of Mosul eastern part thereof, he said, adding that “Nouri” Mosque which threw a leader of the “Daesh,” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, his first speech, “will be very soon under our control, in addition to historical Mosul humpback beacon, “he says.

He announced the leader of the Iraqi army, Colonel Saad Khalaf, said in an interview with “new Arab”, that “the military forces of the Armored Division ninth band 16 in addition to PDF crowd gained control of the village Alajafal and residential complex in Sheikh Mohammed, the East Badush area north of Mosul.” . He pointed out that “the Iraqi army and the popular crowd forces will move in the coming hours to control the residential neighborhoods north of the western side of the city of Mosul, after controlling more than 80 percent of the area Badush space,” he said.

In spite of the progress of the Iraqi forces , which seems fast in western Mosul areas, but so far no permission from the Iraqi military leadership has been issued about the time limit for the end of the fighting in western Mosul, with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al – Abadi, he announced that “Mosul fighting in stages last “, during a press conference in his office in Baghdad on Tuesday night. He warned al-Abadi “Daesh” that they would be killed if not surrender. He said he would visit Washington next week and will meet with the US president, Donald Trump, to search him regarding the battle and  its aftermath . 

According to field military leaders forecast that the Mosul battles definitively resolved will be the beginning of April / May next, after the completion of control most of the west side areas of the city over the next few days, and trapping of the remaining elements of the “Daesh” in small neighborhoods.

With the continuing military operations in western Mosul, thousands of families were forced from western Mosul ‘s population to flee towards the south – west of Mosul areas because of the intensification of the fighting and indiscriminate shelling of mutual between Iraqi forces and elements of the “Daesh”, as well as exposure besieged families to hunger and thirst after running out of their possession of supplies since the beginning of military operations in western Mosul. The reports of international organizations relief that “the number of people displaced from areas west of Mosul has reached more than 100 thousand displaced people since the start of military operations.” They were evacuated thousands of them out of Mosul by military vehicles as they suffer from nutritional and health problems for their lack of the most basic necessities of life such as food and medicine.

Iraqi security forces continued to detain hundreds of men and young people in difficult circumstances in the Hamam al-Alil area south of Mosul for the purpose of the investigation with them and make sure they do not belong to the organization, “Daesh” while allowing the family members to go on their own to the camps for the displaced in the fresh bath and Qayyarah.

As a result of the worsening situation of displaced from the northern city of Mosul and the lack camps capacity to absorb more of them, they sent an Iraqi military leaders and security forces to keep the population of western Mosul areas in their homes during military operations there, in spite of the dangerous situation and the continued clashes and indiscriminate bombing mutual. Local officials in Mosul and is likely to be re-population of the liberated areas in the west of Mosul and relatively distant from the fighting zones, in the coming days, to relieve the pressure on the camps and provided relief efforts for displaced people.
