Iraqi forces brought down the IS flag in the Mosul University complex

Iraqi forces stormed the Mosul University complex in the city’s northeast on Friday and pushed forward to reach another bridge across the Tigris river beating Islamic State further back, the military said. Major-general Sami al-Aridhi, a senior Iraqi counter-terrorism service (CTS) officer said the forces entered the technical college: “We were able to overcome the obstacles prepared by the terrorists, and we controlled the college and the dorm areas. We also brought down the large Daesh (Islamic State) flag in the university. This flag was known to be the highest one erected on the eastern side,” he said. Iraqi forces aim to take full control of the eastern bank of the Tigris river, which bisects Mosul from north to south, before they can launch attacks on the west.
The recapture of the university is an important gain because it enables further advances as it overlooks areas closer to the river.
