As per the reports coming from Iraq, it is believed that ISIS is losing control over the Iraqi City of Mosul.
The Iraqi prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, has said the destruction of the Great Mosque of al-Nuri in Mosul is an admission by the militants that they are losing the fight for the country’s second-largest city.
Thee United States and Iraq said ISIS blew up a historic mosque in Mosul that was the ideological heart of the terror group and the birthplace of its self-declared caliphate.
The US spy satellites have shown a clear damages to the mosque. Images showing the mosque area and aerial photographs provided by the US military depicted scenes of widespread damage, with its renowned leaning minaret no longer standing and the compound largely in ruins.
The situation in Mosul is desperate. As ISIS is being squeezed into even smaller territory — a handful of neighborhoods and Mosul’s Old City — the civilians held hostage are running out of food. Residents said ISIS fighters have massacred people, young and old, trying to flee.
It is believed that at least 100,000 civilians remain in the complex battlefield.
As per the reports from the war zone, the ISIS are deliberately killing the children in act of revenge against the families and to stop them from leaving the place.
