Iraqi security forces freed over 7,000 civilians from ISIS terrorists at al-Farouq neighborhood in the Old City of Mosul district in the right bank of Mosul, Counter-terrorism Special Forces Commander Gen, Ma'an al-Sa'adi announced on Thursday.

He asserted that these civilians were sent to security checkpoints, so they could check their identities over fears of ISIS sleeper cells hiding among them. Then they will be sent to displacement camps.

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