A group of ISIS terrorists surrendered in districts of Mosul's Old City after the security forces begun a military operation to recapture ISIS' last stronghold in the city and Iraq, Iraqi Ministry of Defense announced on Sunday. 

Top ISIS leader Kanaan Jiyad Abdullah Abu Amna, in charge of  checkpoints in Nineveh Governorate, was killed in Bab Jadid district, located in Mosul's right bank, security sources told The Baghdad Post

Earlier this morning, it was reported that Counter Terrorism Service (CTS) forces have begun to push deep into the districts of Mosul's Old City. 

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.
