if mosul is important to isis why dont they strengthen the defense?
instead isis attack deir ezzor & palmyra with large scale attack
I believe any access to Mosul from Syria is now cut off.
Just because they have the same flag doesn’t mean it’s the same people everywhere. Anyway, they were defending Mosul successfully until they started retreating. I think they are running out of manpower, or suicide bombers specifically. So they decided to try to defend with the river as a natural barrier.
they do it opposit, they sent jihadist from mossul to the T4 base and to the deir ezzor…
