Federal Police forces have recaptured two thirds of the Old City of Mosul, Federal Police Commander Raed Shakir Jawdat said on Saturday.

In a press statement, Shakir asserted that Federal Police forces are currently approaching SirgKhana neighborhood in the Old City of Mosul, which is considered to be ISIS' last stronghold in the right bank of Mosul.

Victory over ISIS terrorists is only a matter of time now, Shakir stressed.

He further added that ISIS' morale has plummeted as it has lost 80% of its former territories.

This comes 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.
