An updated version of Mosul map showing the latest developments in the battle to recapture ISIS-held areas in right bank of Mosul, has been obtained by The Baghdad Post on Tuesday.

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

As the map shows, the white spots represent the parts of the war-torn city where ISIS is still controlling.

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 Tuesday, Joint operations command in Iraq announced on Tuesday the total losses incurred by ISIS since the beginning of liberation operations until Monday, confirming killing 16,467 of ISIS terrorists. 

Iraqi security forces reduced the area controlled by ISIS terrorists to only 12 kilometers, Iraqi Brigadier General Yahya Rasool said in a press conference.

Iraqi forces have fully liberated al-Eqtisadieen and 17 Tamouz in the right bank of Mosul from ISIS terrorists, Federal Police Commander Gen. Raed Shakir Jawdat said.

In a statement, the Center said it renews its commitment to neutrality when covering stories of the battles and the other issues. Our aim is nothing but the truth, the statement concluded. 

Publishing the maps relating to the progress of the Iraqi forces in Mosul is done after contacts with multiple military sources and local officials, it added.

Iraqi Forces launched a major offensive on 19th of February to retake the western part of Mosul after declaring total control of the eastern part of the city on 24th of January as part of the military operations to liberate the city that started on 17th of October 2016.
