IRBIL, June 20 (KUNA) -- The Iraqi army said on Tuesday its troops regained more ground from the so-called Islamic State (IS) group in the old city district, west Mosul.
The 9th mechanized unit restored control over the southern part of Al-Shifaa district, Bash Tapia Castle - a historical site rising high over the Tigris, Yahya Abul-Qassem shrine, the juvenile prison, Maria church, Nineveh health directorate and the fifth bridge on the Tigris.
The new military gains rendered the IS terrorists besieged from all directions in the old city, said Chief of We Are Coming Nineveh Operation Command Lt.-Gen. Staff Abdulamir Yarallah.
Meanwhile, commander of the federal police force Lt.-Gen. Ra'ed Jawdat said the special police forces, tasked with liberating Al-Sarjkhaneh site - the IS command center, cordoned off the site and brace for clearing it from the IS militants.
The Special Forces provided the trapped civilians with safe exits from the area while the anti-terror forces killed 17 IS militants as part of the fight for the last stronghold of group in the old city of Mosul, he added. (end) sbr.gb
