BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) is in serious trouble inside their de-facto Iraqi capital, as the government forces close-in on the terrorist group’s last positions in Mosul City.

On Sunday, the Iraqi Armed Forces managed to capture the Rifa’i and Aribi districts after a short battle with the depleted Islamic State militants inside western Mosul.

With the Rifa’i and Aribi districts captured, the Iraqi Armed Forces are now in control of more than 90 percent of western Mosul, leaving the Islamic State on their last legs inside the provincial capital.

In the coming days, the Iraqi Armed Forces are expected to capture the remaining districts under the Islamic State’s control and put an end to the terrorist group’s presence inside the city.
