Iraqi security forces continue their advancement towards al-Zanjili in northern Old City of Mosul district.
The security forces also defused dozens of booby-trapped vehicles planted by ISIS terrorists inside narrow alleys to cripple their advancement.
Security expert Jasim Hanoun told the Baghdad Post that the military operations will soon end as ISIS terrorists can't withhold Iraqi security forces attacks anymore.
He asserted that these victories must be reinforced by security, intelligence efforts to eradicate ISIS remnants and their sleeper cells to achieve stability in Iraq.
Baghdad University Professor of Political science Khalid Abd al-Elah also told the Baghdad Post that ISIS is not only a terrorist group, but also an ideological, logistical, media and economic organization that will try to reproduce itself once again by sleeper cells as told by their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in his last message to his followers.
Many experts also asserted that ISIS currently lacks one of its most important assets which is suicide bombers as result of the death of many of its terrorists in the course of Mosul battles.
Hey also asserted that ISIS has fractioned into several overwhelmed cells that use human shields and narrow alleys to protect themselves.
These achievements come as the offensive launched on 19th of February by US-backed Iraqi forces, supported by Iranian-backed sectarian IMIS Shiite militias to oust ISIS terrorists from Mosul, their last major stronghold in Iraq enters its last stages.
