RIA News cites a fragment of a statement by a representative of the administration of Iraqi Kurdistan:
Territorially, the city of Makhmur belongs to Iraqi Kurdistan, but in agreement with the leadership of the Peshmerga (Kurdish militia), the Iraqi military is being trained at the base located there. American instructors are training Iraqis to storm the city of Mosul. It’s not quite correct to call it American, rather, it’s Iraqi, but there are a large number of American instructors on it.
Turkish News Agency Anadolu reports that the aircraft of the American coalition increased the number of attacks on the positions of Daesh (ISIS) in the Mosul area. In this case, Anadolu refers to the Iraqi General Nadjim al-Jaburi. The report says that the ISIS headquarters on the southern outskirts of Mosul was bombarded.
