Iraqi Army Liberated %80 of Eastern Mosul from ISIS

Alwaght- Iraqi army backed by Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and Kurdish Peshmerga Forces has retaken 80 percent of the eastern portion of Mosul city of from ISIS terrorist group.

 “Iraqi fighters, supported by the U.S.-led coalition formed to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, have retaken 70 to 80 percent of eastern Mosul from the terrorists,” US Department of Defense said in a press release on Wednesday.

Plenty of fighting remains in the western part of the city of Mosul, the release warned.

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.

Terrorists also are destroying bridges in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul to hinder army advances.

According to War Media Cell affiliated with the Ministry of Defense, ISIS 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.

Mosul, second largest Iraqi city, fell to ISIS in 2014 but Iraqi national army supported by the PMF and Peshmerga forces have launched a large-scale 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.
