Iraqi Army Liberates Mar Toma Church Area From ISIS In Mosul

On Saturday, the Iraqi Army liberated the Mar Toma Church in the Old Mosul area on the right side of Mosul city. Unfortunately, ISIS had almost completely destroyed the church previously.

Furthermore, Iraqi forces managed to kill Jasim Mohammed Akoub, an ISIS commander in Old Mosul while he was trying to cross the Tigris River towards the left side of Mosul.

Iraqi forces continued to advance in the northern and southwestern parts Old Mosul. Currently government forces are focusing on evacuating civilians.

According to reports, the number of ISIS fighters remaining in Mosul does not exceed few hundreds.

From its side, ISIS claimed that two suicide bombers managed to infiltrate the left side of Mosul and attacked the Iraqi Army gatherings in Al-Muthana district, allegedly killing 60 Iraqi soldiers. However, Iraqi sources said that ISIS suicide bombers attacked a shopping mall and opened fire and threw grenades at civilians before they blew themselves up.

ISIS has recently increased terrorist attacks against civilians in Iraq. However, this time it seems they have focused on targeting Sunni areas.
