Iraq's Federal police forces have pushed deep into the third bridge street at al-Zanjili neighborhood in the right bank of Mosul, Federal Police commander Gen. Raed Shakir Jawdat said on Saturday.

In a statement, Jawdat said that Federal Police forces stormed al-Zanjili neighborhood and are currently approaching the Old City of Mosul.

These efforts come as part of an offensive launched on 19th of February by US-backed Iraqi forces, supported by Iranian-backed sectarian IMIS Shiite militias to oust ISIS terrorists from Mosul, their last major stronghold in Iraq.
