Iraqi forces enter jihadist-held Mosul, military says

Iraqi forces fought their way into jihadist-held Mosul on Tuesday as a top commander said the "true liberation" of the city from the Islamic State group had begun.


Just over two weeks into the massive offensive to retake Mosul -- IS's last major stronghold in Iraq -- the army said its forces had managed to push within city limits.

Troops had "entered the Judaidat Al-Mufti area, within the left bank of the city of Mosul," the Joint Operations Command said in a statement.
