ISIS push families back to the heart of Mosul
Security sources reported to Al Arabiya that ISIS is fighting to protect a new defensive line in the archaeological city of Nineveh
Al Arabiya’s correspondent in Iraq said on Friday that ISIS is forcing the residents of the neighborhoods that are near the Iraqi forces and which were not invaded by counter-terrorism forces to flee towards the center of Mosul, to ensure that these families will not go towards areas that are being recovered from ISIS.
Security sources reported to Al Arabiya on Thursday that ISIS is fighting to protect a new defensive line in the archaeological city of Nineveh, in order to prevent Iraqi forces from approaching adjacent areas to the Tigris River.
On another level, regarding the losses of ISIS in Mosul, Al Arabiya correspondent quoted security sources saying that ISIS security leader in Nineveh, Badran Abu Ayyub, was killed in an air strike by the international coalition.
It is worth mentioning that the intensity of the fighting in Mosul has downgraded recently due to heavy rains and bad weather, prompting ISIS to launch counter attacks on Thursday, targeting the counter-terrorism apparatus and civilians.
