Iraqi security forces encircled the Old City of Mosul


Via The War Files  –  Today, Iraqi security forces encircled the Old City of Mosul. The Iraqi 9th armored division liberated the al-Shifaa district, which includes the Mosul’s main hospitals, alongside the western bank of the Tigris river. 

For the Iraqi army, taking Shifaa meant the Old City of Mosul is now completely surrounded by government forces, deployed in all directions across the river. The battle for the Old City is becoming the deadliest in the offensive to capture Mosul.
