The Iraqi military said in a statement that U.S.-backed Iraqi forces reached the vicinity of Mosul airport on Monday (February 21) after dislodging Islamic State fighters from a nearby hill which is close to Albu Saif, a village two miles from the airport. “We are in Albu Saif and we started to clear houses from bombs, and we are conducting house-to-house search”, said Police Lieutenant Colonel Hussein. The Iraqi forces aim to take the airport, just south of Mosul, and turn it into a close support base for the offensive into the city itself.
