Iraqi forces
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. 

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 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.

On Monday, a spokesman for Iraqi Joint Operations said the battle to recapture Mosul would be resolved within 72 hours, according to a video obtained by The Baghdad Post on Monday. 

This comes at a time when an Iraqi military source confirmed 26 ISIS terrorists had been killed in battles in al-Zanjili district in Mosul.

Also, Iraqi prime minister and commander in chief of the armed forces Haider al-Abadi confirmed the victory over the terrorists will be proclaimed soon.
