Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) have entered the Industrial district west of al-Karamah in the ISIS stronghold of Mosul in the Iraqi province of Nineveh. ISF is aiming to liberate the area from ISIS terrorists. An intense fighting is ongoing there.
Earlier this week, ISF allegedly liberated the areas of al-Arkoob and al-Saada located southeast of Tell Kepe. While ISF claims that al-Arkoob and al-Saada are under full control of government forces, there are indications that ISIS units are still able to operate in the area.
