Iraqi forces close to liberating al-Zanjili

At least 30 "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) fighters were killed in the battle for west Mosul on Tuesday (June 6th), Iraq's Joint Operations Command said.

International coalition airstrikes also destroyed six ISIS positions in al-Zanjili neighbourhood and near Bab al-Toub.

"Our forces will likely achieve all of their goals in al-Zanjili in the coming hours," command spokesman Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasul told Diyaruna.

Meanwhile, Iraqi forces launched new operations in Bab al-Toub, "while the Counter-Terrorism Service completed the destruction of ISIS's last remaining pockets in al-Seha neighbourhood", he said.
