    They have no incentive to fight, hence such successes.

        They probably cannot fight at all ------ after all, until recently there was a "resentment" "against the Iranian army, which was not allowed to force the militants into Syria. They only thought to drive them back and forth, so that

    Air support is provided by Western coalition aviation.
    - Key phrase.

    There is simply no trust in any movement that they are doing there. Zapadanaya .... mna ..... aviation .... mna .... coalition. Yeah, those are still helpers.

    Helped so many times. That the hospitals in Afghanistan and Syria no longer want to. Such saviors.

    In general, a very strange situation, under the Mosul took warehouses with weapons and ammunition intended for the Free Syrian Army (SSA), the SSA sponsored by Turkey and the US-led coalition is fighting against the legitimate government of Syria, the Russian aerospace forces are fighting in support of the Syrian government.
    Question: Who is Putin friends with ???

      Killganoff portray dull or just a provocateur? Lying on the sofa, I’m bored, because, in the hope that you belong to the first category, I’ll draw a layout. It's obvious-Putin is friends with Assad, and Turkey and a coalition with terrorists. The West and Turkey declare that they are fighting terrorists, but in fact they are solving their problems using the latter. Kurdistan Turk is a nightmare, and the states need confusion on the BV and in Europe, as well as pumping gas and oil to Europe, because their companies sit in Qatar and the CA on hydrocarbon production, and at the same time they also dream of throwing Russia out of the European market.

    The Iraqis took about 1/4 of Mosul (from the east and southeast), and the case stalled.
    Today, American reinforcements arrived: several hundred people.
    They will try to break through the defense of Mosul from the north.
    From the south and west, Mosul was surrounded by Shiite police and parts of the Iraqi army, which are weaker.

      Is it the paratroopers who previously announced or added special forces?

      In any case, if the Americans are taken seriously, then things will go quickly.

      There the igiloids put the Iraqi motorized division (forgot the number). Judging by the photos and videos in the city, they never learned how to fight, and this is followed by heavy losses. The tanks are there by themselves, the infantry too, as at the beginning of the current Syrian war. The video was removed, the Ninth Mechanized Division, shoveled off during the assault on the hospital. the militants also have problems. Two shots from an RPG with a tandem grenade, from close range, and both went lower than necessary, at Abrashka and at BKh, but still tore the division. The problem there is that the residents of the city sympathize with the militants, as in Syrian Cancer, who were against the massacre long ago. So this is a serious hemorrhoid.

        Well, not all the same.
        There, coalition aviation still carried out air strikes against them, Iraqis got more from it than from slippers.
        Techniques for scrap were transferred - Mama Do not Cry.

          This abandoned technique of Iraqi special forces that hit the
          ambush, capturing a complex of buildings, and the equipment parked behind them.
          The soldiers retreated, and the equipment was destroyed from the air.

      And where should they hurry? Mosul is surrounded, bomb him in the smoke
      Iraqis do not want, although the Americans could arrange it.
      The Americans recently sent their infantry, they will try it themselves.

        Just do not believe what happens.

    Something is not heard of the screech of international society over the killed civilians of Iraqi Mosul! Or those killed by the American coalition are not considered dead?

      Another point that I might have missed: I didn’t come across a single message about any humanitarian corridors in Mosul for peaceful exit. request
