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.

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.
