Iraqi forces, supported by US-led coalition warplanes, artillery units and military advisers, have made significant gains against the ISIS terrorist group in the eastern part of the Iraqi city of Mosul.

According to Iraqi Lieutenant General Talib Shaghati, Iraqi security forces (ISF), led by the Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS), have taken control of about 70 percent of eastern Mosul from the terrorist group.

Iraqi forces are still need to secure the recently liberated areas in eastern Mosul.

Iraqi forces were able to develop the momentum due to better coordination of the operation. A high number of US military advisers on the ground contributed to this.

However, western Mosul and a large part of eastern Mosul remain under the control of ISIS.
