As a result, the Iraqi troops and units of the US-led international coalition against the IG transferred some of the forces from the Old City — the concentration of terrorists in Mosul, in order to once again clear out the Yarmuk and Tanak areas.

The IG militants who attacked were disguised as uniforms of the Iraqi Shiite militia.

At the same time, the Iraqi army announced its release from the militants of the "Islamic state" * of the al-Mashahd district in Mosul.

Earlier it was reported that the Iraqi military had prepared for a decisive assault on the center of Mosul, where the defense forces of the IG remained less than 200 *.

The Sixteenth Infantry Division liberated al-Mashahd district in the old city of Mosul and raised the Iraqi flag over its buildings.

    The United States is participating in the battle on both sides, helping both the igloo and the Iraqis fight to exhaustion, after which the United States will impose its conditions on both sides and the igles will be taken out for regrouping in Arabia.

It may not be the US infantry on earth, but everything else is according to their standard and they are !! How do these stupid people plan to fight us at all?
