DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:45 P.M.) – The Iraqi Armed Forces capitalized on recent gains along the Tigris River in Nineveh province by liberating the Water Plant northwest of Mosul. This facility supplies most of the northern city with water.

In addition, the Iraqi Army’s 16th Division, supported by the Abbas Brigade of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), expelled ISIS from the nearby village of Khawaja Khalil, on the eastern bank of the Tigris River near the Badush Dam.

Regrettably, a mass grave containing the corpses of over 500 Shi’ite prisoners executed back in 2014 was unearthed near the recently liberated Badush Prison.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi Army’s Rapid Response Division and Counter-Terrorism Units pushed deeper inside the Risalah and Nablus neighborhoods in western Mosul. At least two ISIS suicide bombers targeted Iraqi troops inside the northern city on Saturday:

During today’s operations on the Mosul frontier, a total of 87 ISIS militants were captured alive, many of whom were accused of perpetrating the Badush Prison massacre.

On a separate frontline further south in the embattled country, the PMU repelled an overnight ISIS attack on the village of Fathah, north of Baji. A military source claimed 15 ISIS militants were killed and 22 more injured by Saturday morning following the failed offensive.
