Iraqi Army Operations against Daesh Continue in Eastern Mosul
Iraqi troops advanced against Islamic State (ISIS / Daesh / ISIL / IS) terrorist fighters toward the center of Mosul on Sunday, Al-Alam News Network reports.
They were slowed down by sniper fire and suicide bombings as well as concern over the safety of civilians in a city that is home to more than one million people.
A few hundred civilians emerged from rubble-strewn front-line neighborhoods in search of safer ground, including women and children, some of them carrying bags or small suitcases.
