Iraqi security forces (ISF) have destroyed a media center belonging to the ISIS-linked media outlet ‘Amaq’ in the central part of the Iraqi city of Mosul.
The Amaq News Agency is an ISIS propaganda and news outlet covering the situation in Syria and Iraq as well as the terrorist group’s actions around the world. Amaq was established during the clashes in Syria’s Kobanî in 2014 in order to provide a pro-ISIS coverage of the battle. ISIS also uses the outlet to claim responsibility for terrorist attacks.
Meanwhile, ISF has launched an attack on Mosul’s Old City from multiple fronts. The most powerfull attack was launched from the area of the Bab al-Tub neighborhood.
