Mosul op has displaced almost half a million

About the USA -led coalition's coordination with Iraqi forces in Mosul operations, al-Alusi said: "Poor weather conditions in the region have reduced airstrikes of the global coalition's warplanes on Daesh-linked sites in western Mosul".

Iraqi police say Islamic State militants also are using suicide bombers on motorcycles to navigate the Old City's narrow streets.

US-backed Iraqi forces are battling ISIS militants in the more densely populated western half of Mosul.

In February, Iraqi ground forces - backed by a US -led air coalition - began fresh operations aimed at ousting ISIL from western Mosul, the terrorist group's last bastion in northern Iraq.

As you can see in the image, Nokia 9 might come with the screen having smaller bezels and no physical home button. At this point, it's still easy days, and there's no way to prove if the purported sketch is legitimate.

This is the second time in as much days that IS terrorists have used chemical weapons in an effort to stop government troops' advance on the old city.

Around four hundred thousand people are still in the city where Iraqi military forces are trying to dislodge IS from the Old City area.

Government forces, including army, police and elite counter terrorism units have taken back most of it, including the half that lies east of the Tigris river.

The statement says the strikes targeted IS positions in Raqqa and the town of al-Bukamal and village of al-Dishaisha near the Iraqi border.

Suspected chemical attack "fabrication", says Assad
More than 80 people were killed in what the USA has described as a nerve gas attack that Assad's forces undoubtedly carried out. In his Wednesday interview with AFP , Assad similarly said his nation would allow only an "impartial" investigation.

Meanwhile, the federal police and interior ministry special forces, known as Rapid Response, continued their battles on the southern and western front lines at the edge of the old city center, the source said.

ISIS terrorist group launched a chemical attack in a recently-liberated area in Western part of Mosul in Nineveh province, severely wounding several Iraqi soldiers.

In addition to parts of western Mosul, IS also holds part of Iraq's Kirkuk province as well as areas in the country's west.

Iraqi "successes in Mosul obscure how (IS) has successfully been resurging in other provinces in Iraq", Martin said.
