Hisham al-Hashimi

ISIS is still controlling some neighborhoods in Mosul city, Hisham al-Hashimi, an Iraqi researcher specialized in security affairs and armed groups, confirmed on Sunday. 

In a televised interview, al-Hashimi said that ISIS terrorists are still in Mosul.

Do not believe the Iraqi media that claimed Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) or any other force were victorious in Mosul, he noted.




He also stated that situation is so intense that journalists' bodies are still in Mosul, adding that security forces are incapable of bringing them back to their districts in Salahuddin Governorate due to the heavy presence of ISIS terrorists in the city. 

Earlier, Federation of Arab Journalists said that over 102 Iraqi journalists were killed and injured while covering Mosul battles.
