Iraqi security forces are very close to the full liberation of the Iraq city of Mosul from ISIS. However, the terrorist group still controls a part of the Old Mosul area and has a network of sleeper cells in the city.
The Syrian Democratic Forces, backed up by the US-led coalition, are storming the Syrian city of Raqqah controlled by ISIS. The US-backed force has achieved some progress inside the city, but an intense fighting shows that ISIS has enough resources for a stiff resistance.
The Syrian Arab Army and its allies have liberated a large area east of Khanasir from ISIS and now are developing momentum against the terrorist group in the province of Homs.
