  • Iraqi forces declare liberation of Rafidain and Tanak neighborhoods
  • IS militants use drones to launch deadly chemical attacks on Iraqi forces in Old Mosul
  • Mortars launched by IS militants kill four civilians
  • Airstrikes kill 11 IS militants in Refa’i and Zanjali neighborhoods

Editor's Note: Iraq Oil Report gathers daily updates on security and humanitarian developments inside Mosul city and surrounding IS-held areas in Ninewa province from a network of local reporters, residents, resistance fighters, and IS militants. Because of the physical risks associated with information-gathering in these areas, these reports are not comprehensive, and many cannot be immediately confirmed via multiple, reliable sources. Nonetheless, we believe there is a significant public interest in publishing this reporting.

The Custom Research Service of Iraq Oil Report also collects hard data on violence in IS-held territory, compiles maps and analysis of trends, and tracks economic indicators including commodity prices.
