An updated version of Mosul map showing the latest developments in the battle to recapture ISIS-held areas in Nineveh Governorate, particularly the city's right bank, has been obtained by The Baghdad Post on Saturday.

On the map, the spots marked in green represent the previously ISIS-held areas that have been liberated.

In Mosul, there are areas still witnessing clashes between the Iraqi forces, backed by international coalition, and ISIS terrorists. They are marked in orange on the map.

On Saturday, Rapid Response Forces foiled an attack by ISIS suicide bombers in the Industrial Zone, killing seven of them, he added. 

Also, the forces killed two other terrorists at the entrance of al-Islah al-Zeraei neighborhood.
