An updated version of Mosul's map showing the latest developments in the battle to oust ISIS from occupied districts in the city's right bank has been obtained by The Baghdad Post on Monday.

The areas in green illustrate the completely regained ones, areas in orange show the areas currently witnessing clashes while the areas in white are still controlled by ISIS terrorist group.

The map has been released by Nineveh Media Center on its official Facebook page.

Iraqi forces pushed deeper into Mosul's Old City on Monday after launching a final assault on ISIS group, warning civilians to stay inside and telling militants to "surrender or die"

Lt Gen Raed Shaker Jawdat said in a statement his forces killed Abku Bakr al-Masry and retook al-Hadin Mosque in Old Mosul. 



On February 19th, the Iraqi army, backed by the US-led international coalition and Iran-allied IMIS militias, launched an offensive to recapture the right bank of Mosul. 

Since the start of the battle to retake Mosul, an estimated 862,000 people have been displaced. Around 195,000 have since returned, mainly to the city's east.

The militants have since lost most of the territory they once controlled in the face of US-backed offensives in Iraq and in Syria, where a Kurdish-Arab alliance is advancing on the group's last Syrian stronghold Raqa.

It is not clear how many ISIS members remain in Mosul, where many foreign fighters have joined local militants since the city was taken.
