DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:40 A.M.) – Following the capture of two neighborhoods yesterday, the Iraqi Army proceeded to liberate another suburb on Friday morning.

After clearing out the last jihadist sniper nests and ISIS gun positions, the Counter Terrorism Units were able to impose full control over the announce Al-Warshan district minutes ago. Sappers have now begun to demine the neighborhood.

Notably, ISIS controls little more than a handful of neighborhoods subject to increasing pressure by the Iraqi Federal Police, Rapid Response Division and Counter Terrorism Units, an Iraqi Army trio which have been tasked with mopping-up operations along the western bank of the Tigris River, eventually qulminating in the total liberation of Mosul.
