New Iraqi push on Daesh-held Mosul centre

Iraqi forces have launched a new push in their battle to capture western Mosul from so-called Islamic State (IS, Daesh), BBC reports.

Joint operations command (JOC) spokesman Brig-Gen Yahya Rasool told state TV on Sunday that Iraqi forces were advancing towards the old centre of the city from the south and south-west.

JOC statements quoted by AFP news agency said security forces were attacking the neighbourhoods of al-Dindan, al-Sumood, Tal al-Raman and al-Dawasa, where the provincial governor's offices are located.
