Residents in southern Mosul clash with ISIS

A group of residents in a southern sub-district of Mosul have launched armed conflicts against the ISIS militants in their home town, leaving several terrorists killed and injured.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - A group of residents in a southern sub-district of Mosul have launched armed conflicts against the ISIS militants in their home town, leaving several terrorists killed and injured.

The confrontations took place on Sunday, August 28, in Hamam Ali sub-district where the residents had previously, on several occasions, mounted resistance against the harsh rules of the extremists.

Iraqi media reported that at least five terrorists were killed in the confrontations with several more injured.

With a prolonged rule of IS in their area and lack of services, stability and security under the control of the terrorists, residents in northern Iraq are occasionally confronting the militants or conduct raids on their checkpoints.

Commander of Nineveh Joint Operations, Najim al-Jabouri, said after the liberation of Qayyarah district last week that the civilians can play a significant role in defeating IS in Mosul and other areas. He called on the Mosul residents to not flee the city during an imminent operation to free their city, but stay and support the government forces.

He commended the people of Qayyarah for standing against IS while the Iraqi army was approaching the district.
