Iraqi Troops Get into IS-Controlled City of Mosul; Some Civilians Flee City,Others Used as IS Shields

More than two years after the Islamic State (IS) terror group took control of Mosul -- Iraq's second largest city -- Iraqi forces today (November 1, 2016) entered the outer edges of the city, according to The Daily Beast website.

Lt. Gen. Abdelwahab al-Saedi, a commander with the counterterrorism forces, said, "We are dealing with pockets of resistance and booby traps."

The push into Mosul from the east followed Iraqi government forces taking several nearby villages.

Some civilians were still fleeing Mosul by convoys, while others were being used by barbarous IS troops as human shields against the Iraqi forces.
