New Iraqi Push Toward Old City in Mosul

Iraqi forces launched a new attack on the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group in Mosul's Old City on Sunday, military officials said, trying to break the stalemate in attempts to seize the militants' last stronghold.
Mosul, Iraq's second biggest city, was captured by the terrorists in 2014, but government forces have retaken much of it during a six-month operation, Reuters reported.
The advance has hardly moved for more than a month though, as the militants are holding out in the densely populated Old City in western Mosul, where tanks and heavy vehicles are not able to operate because of its narrow streets.
