Iraqi forces
Federal Police forces are fighting the last hours of battle against ISIS in al-Nujaifi street in Mosul's Old City, Lieutenant-General Raed Shaker Jawdat, commander of Federal Police Forces, revealed on Friday.   

Jawdat said that his forces are achieving goals courageously, adding that ISIS terrorists are besieged in a 250 m area in al-Nujaifi street.

On Thursday, Federal police units controlled an underground ISIS training center in Albu Saif village in southern Mosul. 

This comes as Iraqi security forces ousted ISIS terrorists from the right bank of Mosul and are currently sweeping the war-torn city to cleanse it from the terror group's remnants.

Months of grinding urban warfare have displaced 900,000 people, about half the city's pre-war population, and killed thousands, according to aid organizations.
