In October, Abadi announced a major US -backed offensive to recapture the city, and Iraqi forces most recently recaptured the airport.Meanwhile, the federal police and elite interior ministry units, known as Rapid Response, are still fighting street-to-street battles to liberate southern neighborhood of Jawsaq and Tayaran from the extremist militants, the JOC said. “The bridge is about 400 meters away”.The advances came a day after special forces joined the fight for western Mosul.”I think west Mosul will be an incredibly hard nut to crack, because it’s a very ancient city, there are a lot of small alleys and armed vehicles can’t go down those narrow alleys”.
