Operations in Mosul slowed down after recent massacre

Nineveh governorate's security commission  member Dawud Jindi
Nineveh governorate's security commission asserted on Sunday that the military operations in Mosul have slowed down in the recent days, especially after Mosul's al-Jadedah massacre.

The past ten days witnessed a major low-paced progress for the military operations, security commission member Dawud Jindi said.

"If these ten days had been put into good use we could have fully liberated the right bank of Mosul," according to Jindi.

The controversy of Mosul al-Jadedah massacre reduced joint forces moral, Jindi said, noting that the security forces are besieging Great Nuri Mosque in the Old City of Mosul for 15 days without any significant progress.

Death toll from the deadly botched air raid conducted by the US-led coalition on March 24th on Mosul rose to 700, sources said on Saturday.

Local sources revealed that over 100 bodies of civilians killed in the raid, including women and children, are still buried under the rubble in Mosul.
