ISIS militants completely surrounded in Mosul

Islamic State militants were completely trapped in Mosul, Brett McGurk, the US special presidential envoy for the global coalition against ISIS, said on Sunday.

McGurk added the last road out of Mosul" has been cut off as the remaining western neighborhoods of the city held by the terror group are now completely surrounded. Meanwhile, a senior official from the elite Counter-Terrorism Service(CTS) said that Iraqi government forces have expelled IS fighters from about 30 per cent of western Mosul, a major progress in the massive operation to retake the second largest city of Iraq. The eastern Mosul was liberated in January.
