Despite encountering a steady flow of ISIS suicide bombers, the Iraqi Armed Forces are gradually retaking Iraq’s second largest city amid heavy urban warfare.

On Monday, the Iraqi Army’s Rapid Response Units captured the water and sewage department in the Al-Danadan neighborhood along with its power station. These sites are located near the recently liberated Hurriya bridge at the Tigris River.

Nearby, the Iraqi Federal Police liberated the famed Mosul Museum, the Courts Complex and Police Department amid steady progress in the central Dawasa and Mansour districts.

During clashes in western Mosul, Iraqi troops also captured a Russian ISIS fighter:

Meanwhile, ISIS stiffened its fortifications around the impregnable government buildings that now serve as the last defensible line in western Mosul.

With 80% of the city under government control, ISIS’ forces in Mosul are expected to collapse completely once they lose the battle for the central government buildings.
