Federal Police forces

Federal Police forces have recaptured strategic buildings in the Old City district in the right bank of Mosul, Federal Police commander Gen. Raed Shakir Jawdat said on Thursday.

In a press statement, Jawdat asserted that the recaptured buildings at Bab al-Tob neighborhood have put Great al-Nuri Mosque in the firing range of Federal Police forces.

Federal Police forces are currently forming safe passages for civilians, supply routes that link the Old City district with command center in Badush to launch operations to retake the rest of Mosul.

These efforts come as part of an offensive launched on 19th of February by US-backed Iraqi security forces, supported by Iranian-backed sectarian IMIS Shiite militias to oust ISIS terrorists from Mosul, their last major stronghold in Mosul.
