U.S.-backed Iraqi forces launched on Sunday a new push toward the Daesh-held old city centre of Mosul, on the western bank of the Tigris river, an Iraqi military spokesman said.
Iraqi forces are fighting their way toward the old centre of the city, advancing from the south and the southwest, Brigadier-General Yahya Rasool, spokesman for the joint operations command, told state-run television.
Iraqi forces captured the eastern side of Mosul in January after 100 days of fighting and launched their attack on the districts that lie west of the Tigris river on Feb. 19.
Their advance in western Mosul paused over the past 48 hours because of bad weather. Defeating Daesh terror group in Mosul would crush the Iraqi wing of the terror group.
