50 Iraqis killed, 51 wounded in airstrikes in Mosul


At least 50 Iraqis were killed and 51 others injured in governmental and international coalition airstrikes in the right bank of Mosul on Wednesday, security sources told The Baghdad Post.

Since February 19, the Iraqi army in partnership with the US-led International Coalition have launched an offensive code-named 'We Are Coming, Nineveh' to oust ISIS from Mosul.

A source at PM Haider Abadi's office told The Baghdad Post on Wednesday said he intends to declare Mosul utterly liberated by April 30th. 

The source revealed that only six districts remain under ISIS grip, adding the Old Mosul district would be declared liberated within two days.

The preliminary indicators say all neighborhoods of the city that fell to ISIS in 2014 would be liberated with a week from now. 

After liberating the city, all the districts will be combed to safely move food supplies to residents and transfer those injured to hospitals, the source said. 

Abadi visited Mosul today to inspect the ongoing military operations.
