Storyline


Iraqi Federal Police (IFP), one of the main fighting forces at the west bank of the Tigris River, is getting closer and closer to Mosul’s old city, said Khalaf al-Badran, commander of the police force.

"Now our troops have reached nearby Mosul's old city from the northern side, and besieged the area. Now we have to reoccupy the Al-Zinjili area in front of us and then it will pave a way for entering the old city," said Badran.

According to data released by the Iraqi Ministry of National Defense, coalition troops and the Iraqi police have retaken the Al-Rafaee Area while they were proceeding towards Mosul. Meanwhile, Iraqi air forces struck the extremists ammunition depot and killed a number of extremists.

However, the proceeding speed of the coalition troops along the banks of the Tigris River has been very slow since the land-regaining war launched in February this year. Faced with a large number of trapped residents and complicated city structures, Badran pointed out that the priority is to rescue the trapped people and thus, they slowed down to maintain the safety of local people.

"To protect the people in the old city area, we proceeded slowly and the weapon we used was also limited, because we were afraid of injuring innocent civilians. In addition, our commander also ordered that we should protect the civilians and infrastructure in the area. So we proceeded with great care and slow speeds, and we would thoroughly research the directions we planned to march towards," said Badran.

After months of combat, the troops regained most of the west bank area of the Tigris River, but there still remains some huge obstacles to regain Mosul’s old city area. Badran noted that they would completely besiege the area and launch a general attack on enemies at the right time.
