Bomb sparks Mosul fight­ing

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

An ISIS sui­cide car bomber at­tacked Iraqi spe­cial forces in Mosul yes­ter­day, set­ting off heavy fight­ing in the city. The early morn­ing at­tack in the Qa­disiya neigh­bour­hood, which the troops en­tered a day ear­lier, was fol­lowed by a bar­rage of gun­fire, mor­tar rounds and rocket-pro­pelled grenades, Iraqi of­fi­cers said. Fight­ing was also un­der way in the ad­join­ing Ar­ba­jiya neigh­bour­hood, the of­fi­cers added. The Iraqi armed forces do not re­lease ca­su­alty fig­ures, but field medics have noted dozens of killed and wounded since the op­er­a­tion to lib­er­ate Iraq’s sec­ond largest city be­gan last month.
