The Islamic State group is forcibly gathering people in and around Mosul for possible use as human shields against advancing Iraqi forces, said residents, confirming UN fears. AP
Iraq launched a massive operation to retake Mosul from the extremists a little more than two weeks ago, and its forces have reached the eastern outskirts of the city. AP
Elite Iraqi forces entered the city after Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned jihadists who hold it that they have no choice but to surrender or die. AP
For CTS's "Mosul Regiment" fighting for the city, retaking it is a matter of pride. AP
The recapture of Mosul by Iraqi forces could spell the end of the group's days as a land-holding force in Iraq and deal a death blow to the "caliphate". AP
