  • Iraqi forces begin Right Bank campaign with multi-front offensive
  • Intense barrage of airstrikes support Iraqi ground forces; civilian casualties reported
  • IS militants threaten to behead civilians found with mobile phones, execute IS members who helped their families escape to liberated Left Bank
  • Two named IS leaders reportedly killed in airstrikes

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.

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.
