New map shows progress of Iraqi forces in Mosul Battle
An updated version of Mosul map showing the latest developments in the battle to recapture ISIS-held areas in Nineveh Governorate, particularly the city’s right bank, has been obtained by The Baghdad Post on Sunday.
On the map, the spots marked in green represent the previously ISIS-held areas that have been liberated.
As the map shows, the white spots represent the parts of the war-torn city where ISIS is still controlling.
In Mosul, there are areas still witnessing clashes between the Iraqi forces, backed by international coalition, and ISIS terrorists. They are marked in orange on the map.
The map was released by Nineveh Media Center on May 7th.
In a statement, the Center said it renews its commitment to neutrality when covering stories of the battles and the other issues. Our aim is nothing but the truth, the statement concluded.
Publishing the maps relating to the progress of the Iraqi forces in Mosul is done after contacts with multiple military sources and local officials, it added.
