Iraqi forces are also working to evacuate civilians from the Old Mosul area that remains a key ISIS stronghold in western Mosul.

According to local sources, more than 100,000 civilians are still trapped in the Old Mosul. This explains the slow advance of Iraqi forces there.

Meanwhile the Iraqi Army announced the liberation of the villages of al-Zanazil, Abu Kaddur and Kanisa located east of the road between Al-Kasik and Al-Mahalibiya west of Mosul.

    Very lucky mother and children . 50 degree heat , well done PMU .

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    The Kurds and US label the PMU as heartless and every other name under the sun with intentions to harm the people of Iraq , yet we see they are true men of courage and heart in a world of chaos and madness gone astray . They went behind enemy lines to rescue these children from ISIS . Bravo ! PMU!

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Every war the USA has fought for the last 200 years they called the good guys bad guys, and the US-Empire modeled after the evil-UK-Empire has called themselves good.
      What a joke. Millions of Germans laid in the bottom of trenches in the early 1900’s victims of US-media-lies and the Global-Jewish-Congress.

      You get a bit confused.
      PMU are fighting with American weapons and with US air support against ISIS.

      • Red Tick Alert

        They were to a certain extent but they are Iranian backed and led in general and will assist the SAA in Syria once invited.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        They fight with a variety of weapons , they are armed that way and they have Iraqi air support and not US/Coalition air support as much , many of their weapons were left by the retreating Iraqi Army under Saddam which we call ISIS now . The Kurds fight with Russian weapons but are backed by the US what was your point .

    In the 2nd and 3rd pictures, that huge turret coming out of what appears to be humvees …. that can’t be an M2 browning, can it? Seems too big and thick for an m2

    • testera

      The thick part is barrel shroud/jacket that M2s usually don’t have (and if they do it looks different, with circular holes). The rest of the gun is hard to see, except for the notable lack of front sight. The whole thing looks like some local workshop hack.

        Thought so tnx

        • testera

          Just ran into this footage:

          Conical flash hider is easy recognisable visual feature of KPV. Never saw one without it before. It’s not M2, and it is local workshop hack.

          • mark123456

            i was gonna say kpv initially too because of the second picture having the typical kpv mount. Thanks a lot,

    God be with you PMU.. Always..
