Battle for Mosul

The Associated Press today reports the Iraqi army is launching an assault on the western part of Mosul, Iraq. In the 4 month old battle against the Islamic State, Iraq liberated the eastern part of Mosul last month. Since 2014, the Islamic state has held Mosul which was home to almost two million people. The United Nations estimates that there may be 750,000 people left in western Mosul.
