ISIS Destroys Bridges to Hinder Army Advance in Mosul

Alwaght- ISIS terrorists are destroying bridges in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul to hinder army advances, IraqiNews site reported.

The report quotes War Media Cell affiliated with the Ministry of Defense saying that the terrorists had detonated two bridges in the city of Mosul in order to hinder the advance of security forces to the western side of the city.

“Today, ISIS detonated the 5th bridge and the iron bridge in the western side of Mosul,” the center’s officials said in a press statement.

“ISIS detonated the bridges in order to hinder the advance of security forces to the western side of Mosul,” the statement added.

Iraqi forces have reached a portion of the east side of the Tigris River which divides Mosul in two halves. Iraqi forces continue their operation to liberate the entirety of East Mosul before crossing the Tigris.

Terrorist had cut off water supplies to 30 districts of the city that had been liberated by army forces.

Mosul fell to ISIS domination in 2014 but Iraqi national army supported by the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and Kurdish Pesgmerga have launched an operation to retake the city.

The operation has been going on slowly because of the thousands of civilians who live in the city and Iraqi precautions to minimize civilian causalities during the operation.
