"Ahmad Manati, ISIL's notorious commander, was killed in heavy battle with the Iraqi Federal Police over the control of the key Koukajli road in al-Entesar district to the East of Mosul city," Commander of Iraqi Federal Police Raed Shaker Judat said.

Several ISIL terrorists were killed and wounded in fierce clashes with the Iraqi Federal Police forces.

In a relevant development earlier on Monday, the Iraqi army forces bombed the ISIL strongholds in Northern Mosul in a bid to cut off the Tel Kef supply line.

The Iraqi troops hit three ISIL checkpoints along the Tel Kef road in Northern Mosul city, using heavy artillery.

The shelling led to the destruction of the ISIL security checkpoints and the death of several ISIL militants, ARA News quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

The Tel Kef road is considered one of the main supply lines for the ISIL militants to support their operations against the Iraqi forces in Northern Mosul.

Also on Sunday, Commander of Nineveh Liberation Operation General Abdul Amir Rashid Yarallah disclosed that the Iraqi military forces have continued their advances in the city of Mosul and seized back two more districts.

"The Younes al-Sabawi and Yafa districts are now under the Iraqi forces' control," General Yarallah said.

Several ISIL terrorists were killed and wounded in tough battle with Iraq's joint military forces.

Iraq's joint military forces killed a senior ISIL commander in charge of coordinating the suicide bombers and transferring explosives in Diyala in Northern Salahuddin province.

A military statement for the Nineveh operation said that the Iraqi army, the federal police and the ICTF are taking part in a joint operation to fully liberate the left bank of Mosul.

On October 17th, 2016, the Iraqi Army and it allied forces launched a major battle for Mosul to liberate the city and its surroundings from ISIL.
