The battle in the city has reached its final stage, and the Iraqi forces are backed by a French-Canadian-British cover that surrounds the Old City in the middle of the right-hand Mosul coast, and the 300 fighters can only surrender or continue fighting until the end.

Military officials in Baghdad and Mosul told the “New Arab” that only three neighborhoods are still under the control of the organization, namely the healing and Bab Sinjar and the Old City, the same neighborhoods that have been fighting on its outskirts since yesterday morning, in conjunction with the American and missile bombing carried out by the army forces Iraq. Iraqi officials estimate that there are more than 125,000 civilians in al-Shifa, Bab Sinjar and the Old City. They are forced to travel with him wherever he goes.

Colonel Majid al-Hayani said in an interview with the “New Arab”: “We fear that the battle ends with another massacre, the number of civilians is large and the area in which they are very small, and the organization will not give up and no signs of it, so far,” noting that ” The liberation of those small neighborhoods in just two days, but the stumbling block is tens of thousands of people in them. “

For his part, spokesman for the Joint Operations Command, Brigadier General Yahya al-Zubaidi, told the “new Arab” that “militarily the city is under full control, the neighborhoods in which besieged besieged besieged, and members of the organization have become ineffective in it,” stressing That “the battle is in its final chapter after about 8 months from the beginning.” The commander of military operations in Nineveh, Major General Najm al-Jubouri, was in contact with the “new Arab” to resolve the battle “within a few days.” Jubouri added that “progresscontinues amid the decline of members of the Daash , and if progress continues in the three neighborhoods , the announcement of the liberation of Mosul in full will be in a few days.”

Suicide attacks
In fact, he has “preached” what he called “the womb of the caliphate”. Only 4 percent of his control in Mosul continues to decline, and his voice, which for the past few months has not stopped, has actually stopped, Which was broadcast from inside Mosul. “We were buried and they did not know that we were just seeds … We are proud that five thousand soldiers of the Islamic state stood up eight months before the armies of five major countries,” the statement said. The statement appeared to be thin according to local sources, which confirms that the broadcasters either killed or withdrew from their positions and left only the suicide bombers and the so-called gangs.

The captain in the sixteenth division of the army, the phone Hussein, “The current use of suicide bombers heavily to impede progress and to cause losses in our ranks.” He added in an interview with the “New Arab” that “suicide bombers on two types, some of them explosive belts and come out of an unexpected place and embrace the soldiers and detonate himself, and the second car bombs hidden inside the houses and suddenly emerged on the troops entering the alley or street, That “the weapon of sniping is also effective in the organization, and these lines precede direct confrontation with members of the organization.”
For his part, said a member of the Council of Mosul (local government) Hossam Alabbar, the “new Arab”, that the organization takes the people in the three neighborhoods as human shields. He added that “the issue of parents is a very difficult node and if it is avoided, the liberation will be in two days, but any excessive force means massacre, if not several massacres.”
