Iraqi special forces faced stiff resistance from IS militants as they pushed into Mosul

Iraqi forces have for the first time entered the eastern outskirts of Mosul, as they attempt to drive Islamic State (IS) militants from the northern city.

A BBC correspondent travelling with the Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) troops says they are facing fierce resistance as they push into the Kukjali area.

Rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and machine-guns are being fired at them.
Units of the army’s ninth division are meanwhile said to be bearing down on south-eastern districts of the city.

On Monday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi told the 3,000 to 5,000 militants believed to be inside Mosul, which they overran in June 2014, that there was “no escape” and to “either surrender or die”.

    If there is no escape and is surrender or die, why US has to chase ISIS to Syria? Why violate Syrian sovereignty? Only to launch war against Russia and move to WW III in full.
