Iraqi military sources said on Sunday that ISIS militants began to spread snipers in the old city of Mosul, along with car bombs and suicide bombers.
Iraqi forces are advancing cautiously towards the old city of Mosul, amid clashes between Iraqi forces and ISIS in the neighborhood of the medical city and Ibn Sina Hospital.
Major General Maan al-Saadi, commander of second special operations anti-terrorism forces, said that his forces have recovered almost half of the neighborhood of Al Sehha, adding that it is not possible to set a time limit to end the battle, because on the ground there are many variables.
Saadi revealed that ISIS began to use women in the fight, after having lost many of its men.
The Iraqi military sources confirmed that the area ISIS controls in the western side of the city of Mosul has shrunk to only 5 percent, expecting to move into the decisive stage of the battle by the first half of next month, according to Al Arabiya channel on Sunday.
