:: Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Forces on Monday has recaptured al-Najjar neighborhood in the western side of Mosul, state TV – Iraqia News channel – reported, quoting the military commander of the anti-ISIS operation in Nineveh Province.

Joint Iraqi forces retook the eastern side of Mosul in late January and started the offensive to control the western part a few weeks after.

ISIS has carried out a number of similar attacks targeting military facilities since the operation to retake the Iraqi city of Mosul was launched in October. Iraqi forces are closing in on the last ISIS held neighborhoods in western Mosul after the city’s east was declared liberated in January. ISIS overran almost a third of Iraqi territory in 2014.
