United Nations says 8000 flee west Mosul as Iraqi forces fight ISIL

According to an army general, around 800 civilians arrived at the sector held by the Iraqi army on Tuesday morning.

Those still in Mosul have to face Daesh's strict rule along with a lack of basic goods and the danger from the fighting.

Hundreds of civilians fled through the desert on Tuesday to escape fighting in Mosul, joining thousands of others who left their homes amid dire conditions in the city's west. An old man who came with them said about 20 people were sheltering in their house when it was hit by an air strike two days ago in the southwestern Maamoun district.

Later today from Gawsaq, Iraqi counterterrorism forces moved into the nearby Wadi Hajar neighborhood, he said.

A Reuters reporter saw several trucks teeming with people, lifting columns of sand and dust as they drove away from the city. Gen. Salman Hashem of the Counter-Terrorism Service said.


ISIS warriors allegedly sent the little dog across battle lines to do their dirty work as they have become more desperate in recent months.

The 4th Bridge is the most southern of five main bridges the span the river in Mosul. United States personnel are operating close to the frontlines to direct air strikes.

All of them were damaged in strikes by the US-led air coalition, and later by Islamic State fighters trying to seal off the western bank still under their control. The aim of the multiple attack against this enclave is to keep Isis under pressure on all fronts so it will not have enough men to hold back the Iraqi security forces that far outnumber it. Isis is making very effective use of a mix of snipers, suicide bombers, mortars, bombs, booby traps and drones.

The shocking footage shows three Iraqi soldiers in the fight against the Islamic State bent over the puppy strapped with four bottles containing explosives with electrical wires attached.
