from the turn of the New Year. Iraqi Special forces fighting with ISIS in the streets while trying to evacuate civilians. Hopefully all went well that day.

I almost gave up, as many of the videos I add just get deleted later. But I will keep trying. It took 100 days to cement control of Eastern Mosul, and the coalition forces are preparing to take West Mosul now.


Also US forces allegedly hit a Daesh command center.

Looks like Daes attempted a surprise night attack against the PMU, but are met with a surprise counter attack, thanks in part to the thermal imaging giving a clear view of the approaching militants. Check out the GUI on board their vehicle, seems simple enough in English.

Some updates from the Mosul front. In usual fashion from R & U video, they try to present views from both sides of the conflict. The first couple of minutes shows Daesh fighters in a shambled neighborhood block in West Mosul, a deceased Iraqi soldier in view. Moves on to Iraqi forces engaged in combat as well as some of them speaking about the presence of Saudi license plates found in a VBIED shop.

Some updates. RT Spanish embed with 360º camera inspecting Mosul Museum while mortars and outside.

Helicopters patrol around a compound surrounded by Iraqi PMU, then some mortar attacks on the enemy and finally pushing through the rubble and trenches into another neighborhood.

Daesh fighters are completely surrounded but are fighting to the death with no intention of surrender.



Reports of collateral damage from coalition air strikes are likely a result of Iraqi airforce lack of restraint when targeting their enemies among the city.

with more than half of Western Mosul now under coalition control, the city should be fully liberated by the end of the month, if not next week



Meanwhile, life is getting back to normal in the Eastern block of the city.

Mosul residents flee the city with dead bodies of loved ones


Civilians continue to suffer in the war to drive ISIS from Iraq. On Thursday, family members fled the city, bringing with them the bodies of at least 21 allegedly killed in an airstrike targeting ISIS in west Mosul earlier this week.

“They were pulled from the rubble. Twenty-one bodies, women and children. Even a baby of just six months,” Ziad Khalaf told AFP, pulling a cart bearing the bodies of members of his family.

“They were human shields for the jihadists.”

He and others tried to retrieve the bodies but came under fire from ISIS militants. They had to wait until the neighbourhood was retaken by Iraqi security forces before being able to dig through the rubble and find their loved ones.

Here are some recent street battles between ISIS and Iraqi forces. Its really really #ed up over there right now is about all I can say. Imagine being the poor bastards between the buildings that are just hoping not to catch a stray bullet, or rocket, or mortar, or air strike. Hopefully everyone not fighting in the area has left.
