Nineveh officials: Iraqi forces currently control Old City of Mosul

Iraqi security forces

Iraqi security forces are currently controlling Old City of Mosul, Nineveh Governorate Council's security committee said on Saturday.

The committee cited a security commander as saying two days ago that only 80 meters in the Old City of Mosul haven't been liberated yet.

Based on the security forces' progress, it was agreed to announce the full liberation of Old City of Mosul on Friday, but that was changed for unknown reasons, Head of Nineveh Secretariat Mohamed Ibrahim said.

This comes as US-backed Iraqi forces, supported by Iranian-backed Sectarian IMIS Shiite militias, ousted ISIS terrorists from Mosul and currently are sweeping the war-torn city to oust ISIS remnants from it.
