On Saturday, Iraqi security forces have recaptured Mosul university in the right bank of the city, sources told the Baghdad Post.

UNAMI also confirmed that over 160 civilians had been killed and 52 injured in Nineveh Governorate in May alone.

Security forces, backed by International Coalition air raids and logistic support of the US army, have retaken eastern Mosul and most of its western part after eight months of battles. These forces are focusing now on liberating Old City's districts that are still under ISIS control. 

It is estimated that there are a few of ISIS terrorists left in the second largest city of Iraq. It is expected that they will desperately defend the last pocket of the city that has been once their main stronghold in Iraq.
