  • Federal Police breach old city, without the benefit of airstrike or artillery support
  • Iraqi forces declare liberation of parts of Zinjali and Shifa neighborhoods
  • Hashid forces further isolate IS-held areas of Tal Afar and Ba’aj, cutting transportation route to Syrian border
  • IS snipers continue to target civilians trying to flee toward liberated areas

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.
