Head of Federal Police announced Wednesday his forces had recaptured 85 percent of Zanjili neighborhood in western Mosul and reached Bab Sinjar on the outskirts of the old city of Mosul on the right coast.

In a press statement, Lt. Gen. Raed Shakir Jawdat said, "The federal police forces regained control of 85 percent of Zanjili area and reached Bab Sinjar on the outskirts of the old city".

 "The units are pushing into Zanjili very cautiously after ISIS terrorists had bulldozed buildings, houses, streets and electricity poles," he added. 

"Our forces are intensifying their field intelligence operations to monitor the movements of the leaders of the organization and its weapons and defenses in the old city and target them with guided missiles," he added. 

Since February 19th, the Iraqi army backed by the US-led international coalition has launched an offensive to retake the right bank of Mosul.
