Units of the 15th Brigade in the Iraqi Army have recaptured villages of al-Zanazil, Abu Kodoor and Kanisah, located east of al-Kask-al-Mahlabiya road in western Mosul, "We Are Coming, Nineveh" Operations Command's War Media Cell said on Friday.
It noted that soldiers of these units raised the Iraqi flag over the governmental buildings of these villages.
Currently, the units are combing the villages located in the western axis to liberate other villages in Kask.
Security forces, backed by International Coalition air raids and logistic support of the US army, have retaken eastern Mosul and most of its western part after eight months of battles. These forces are focusing now on controlling the Old City's districts.
It is estimated that there are a few of ISIS terrorists left in the second largest city of Iraq. It is expected that they will desperately defend the last pocket of the city that has been once their main stronghold in Iraq.
