  • Back-clearing and new offensives in Left Bank neighborhoods
  • IS placing mortar positions in and near civilian homes, punishing residents who complain
  • Increased oil fires choke civilians in Bakr and Shudaydah neighborhoods
  • One oil fire extinguished at Qayarah well, but others still burn

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 confirmed via multiple, reliable sources. Nonetheless, we believe there is a significant public interest in publishing this reporting, as it gives readers a view of the battle for Mosul from the opposite side of the front lines.

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.
