Drone buzzes over Mosul Old City after anti-ISIS op
ISIS militants have been pushed back against the Tigris river after a gruelling eight-month campaign by Iraqi security forces.
Iraqi forces launched an operation to retake the Old City neighborhood in mid-June. After a dawn push last Thursday, they retook the area around the al-Nuri Mosque, which the militants had blown up just a few days earlier. After days of fierce battles, Iraqi military officers say IS now controls just over 1 sq km in all, or about 0.40 sq miles.
