Iraqi forces continue their process of liberating the last stronghold of the militants “calling” terrorist in the old city of Mosul amid a decline in the intensity of the fighting compared to the first stage.

“Terrorists are moving from one house to another through holes in the walls to avoid aerial surveillance,” said Lieutenant General Sami al-Ardhi, commander of the second elite forces of the Iraqi counterterrorism forces fighting in the north of the old city.

In an interview with Iraqi television, al-Aradi said on Monday that the fighting is now going on from one building to another in narrow alleys and described the mission as not easy.

For its part, the agency, “Reuters”, quoting a team filming near the front line in the region, the intensity of fighting decreased compared to Sunday when Iraqi forces announced the start of the attack on the old city.

On Sunday, Iraqi forces launched an incursion into the old Mosul area, the last stronghold of the city’s Da’ash, and confirmed that it had broken the first and second lines of the organization.

“The first and second defensive line was broken, and our forces moved 150 meters deep into the old city on the side of the Bab al-Baid and destroyed the positions of snipers, heavy machine guns and three-wheeled rounds, killing 15 terrorists,” the Iraqi federal police said in a statement.

Since 17/10/2016, the Iraqi army has been carrying out Operation Ninawa, supported by the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, the popular mobilization units, the clan buildup and the international coalition aircraft, in order to liberate Mosul from the control of the terrorist organization Da’ash At the international level.
