Iraqi Federal Police divisions have controlled vital targets in al-Zanjili neighborhood, located north of Old City district, Raed Shaker Jawdat, the commander of the Iraqi Federal Police said on Sunday.
In a statement, Jawdat noted that the Iraqi Federal Police have deployed its armored vehicles about 300 meters inside the neighborhood.
He added that ISIS terrorists have escaped from the battlefield leaving behind their weapons while the Iraqi artillery strikes are still targeting the terrorist group defenses north of the Old City, located in Mosul city.
These efforts come as part of an offensive launched on February 19 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.
