BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:04 A.M.) – With the precarious situation for ISIS in Mosul, strong suggestions have been made that the terrorist group is now beginning to run low on ammunition and weapons.
Photos released by the ISIS-affiliated Amaq Agency shows ISIS using homemade rockets to repel the onslaught of the Iraqi Army in the northern city and former Islamic State stronghold of Mosul.
The latest reports from sources in Iraq suggest that there are only around 1,000 ISIS fighters left in the city, bogged down and concentrated in the northwestern sector. This sector accounts for approximately 15% of the city, meaning that Iraqi forces control the remainder.
At the beginning of the operation to liberate Mosul in October, ISIS had approximately 7,000 fighters, in which the majority have been decimated.
