IRAQ: 40 DISTRICTS IN MOSUL’S EAST LIBERATED ON 58TH DAY OF BATTLE

| December 15, 2016

MOSUL, The comprehensive military campaign to liberate the Northern Iraqi city of Mosul continued as Iraq's Joint Operations Command said the security forces regained control of 40 neighborhoods in the Eastern side of Mosul since the offensive to liberate the city began.

Iraq's Joint Operations Command said in a statement Counter-Terrorism forces raised the Iraqi flag in the neighborhoods of Falah 1 and Falah 2 in the Eastern side of the city, NRT reported.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced they have reviewed the plan for the liberation of Mosul and there is an agreement on the ongoing military operations.

Recent findings of a research group revealed that the Daesh terrorist group in Iraq is manufacturing weapons on an industrial scale, with products largely purchased in bulk from Turkey.

The London-based Conflict Armaments Research reported on Wednesday that Daesh has maintained a robust and reliable supply chain between Turkey and Iraq, enabling its members to produce tens of thousands of weapons in and around the Northern city of Mosul, presstv reported.

The arms research group's executive director James Bevan warned that the highly-trained terrorists could take their expertise with them as they are retreating in the wave of an Iraqi battle to liberate Mosul.

Secretary General of Iraq's Badr Organization Hadi al-Ameri disclosed that the Daesh's supply and aid routes from the city of Mosul to Syria have been completely cut off.

"The road connecting Nineveh province to the border with Syria has been fully seized back and the Daesh's supplies to its militants have been suspended," al-Ameri said.

He reiterated that the terrorists have been trying hard to reopen the supply route, but to no avail.

"The routes that the Iraqi volunteer forces have taken back include al-Jahish and Northern al-Sharia regions to the main Tal Afar-Sinjar road as well as the Southern al-Sharia and al-Vasat regions to the road leading to Tal Afar," al-Ameri said.

He underlined that the terrorists are pushing hard to regain control of these regions again, but they have failed so far.

Elite forces of Iraq's Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) identified and destroyed a Daesh training camp while on their way to liberate the city of Mosul.

A CTS commander, Brigadier General Haider Fadhil said that Iraqi forces have fully liberated and cleared out the al-Falah district, located on the city's Eastern side, presstv reported.

"We are now in al-Falah al-Oula and al-Falah al-Thaniya. We breached the defensive lines of the terrorist Daesh and we pushed deeper inside. Now we are carrying search operations in the neighborhood and we found Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi Camp. We seized it and we confiscated all the equipment. The camp contains military equipment and a field for physical training of fighters to prepare them to fight the security forces, he said.
