The Iraqi Army has started evacuating thousands of civilians from the districts remaining under the control of ISIS on the right side of Mosul city. It appears that ISIS has finally allowed civilians to leave its areas in the city.
Meanwhile, the Iraqi Army continued its operations in the Hawi al-Kanisah area along the western bank of the Tigris river. Now, Iraqi forces are on the brink of capturing the third bridge of Mosul.
