MOSUL, Iraq — Thousands of people have fled the fighting in Mosul between the Iraqi forces and the ISIS militants as the Iraqi forces are pushing hard to defeat the extremist group in the heart of its Iraqi capital city, north of the country.
 
In the past 24 hours, 12,458 people have fled from western Mosul, Iraq’s Ministry of Migration and Displacement stated on Saturday.
 
Scores of people fled down streets, pushing young children in makeshift carts, and carrying a few personal items.
 
The Ministry said that 89,245 people have feld western Mosul since the launch of the third and current phase of the Mosul offensive on Feb 19.
 
There have been clashes in the Bab at Tawb district over the past three days.
 
Halab Street, near Al Remah Square and Al-Shuhadaa Martyrs Park, was retaken by Iraqi forces.

Mosul Eye also claimed on Saturday it had received reports Iraqi security forces recaptured Rahma Hospital.
 
Iraqi troops reported Thursday morning that they had retaken the Moalimeen neighborhood and the Silo of Mosul in the western half of the city from ISIS militants and that they are pushing into Naft and New Mosul neighborhood in the center.

The Turkish Salafi terrorists state is responsible for all of those destructions and killings, by supporting & supplying those Muslim ISIL savages, Muslim brotherhood & all of other Salafi Muslim terrorists. Today Turkish Muslim terrorists are for to regain Kurdish territories in Iraq & Syria, destroying the ancient Kurdistan, killing their poor Kurdish citizen by burning them alive, shooting them without asking them any questions, destroying their houses by their tank & Airplains, burning their forest and orchards and killing their poor animals, by their one year and half immoral & unjust brutal curfew. You have to wonder, who and how those supposed to be civilized nations are going to stop this Hitler immitator half Turkish Imam/priest? you have to wonder!
