Destruction in fight to take west Mosul worse than east

However, the western part of Mosul, with its narrow streets and heavily populated neighborhoods, appears to be a bigger challenge to the Iraqi forces.

He is head of ground forces for the US-led coalition fighting ISIL.

Seven alleys in the neighborhood were recaptured, al-Alusi said, adding that his forces killed 15 armed militants and arrested another three; they also destroyed a booby-trapped vehicle through which a suicide bomber tried to target Iraqi troops. "They aren't going anywhere".

"In Iraq, Iraqi forces are making incremental progress on the west side of Mosul, in large part because of the need to protect against civilian casualties".

Since the effort to take Mosul back from ISIS began Feb.19, Iraqi forces supported by coalition airstrikes have cleared almost 200 square miles of territory, Dorrian reported.

Meanwhile, the federal police and interior ministry special forces, known as Rapid Response, continued their battles on the southern and western front lines at the edge of the old city center, the source said.

He noted that there have already been some positive results for the people of Iraq as the fight against ISIS goes on.

Oil demand to slow for the 2nd year in a row: IEA
The International Energy Agency expects growth in the global demand for crude oil to slow for a second consecutive year in 2017. OECD stocks "drew moderately" in February and the IEA anticipates they will dip down further in March.

"One of the things it's very important to understand is that millions of people have been able to return to their homes because of the rollback of ISIS territorial gains".

"Once that task is accomplished, the coalition will be here to support our Iraqi partners as they eliminate IS from every corner of Iraq", Colonel John Dorrian said.

The brutal fighting has taken a massive toll on the civilian population.

"It's very complicated", Martin said.

Any addition of more USA ground troops to Syria will likely be far more controversial now, as the U.S. attacked Syrian government targets just last week, and the administration continues to talk up the idea that further attacks could happen in the near future. "Their ability and capability became stronger and more developed" since the jihadists shocked Iraqi security and intelligence forces with their lightning offensive in June 2104, says Mr. Hashimi. It's very slow, it's very tough.
