Iraqi government forces and Kurdish Pershmega forces, with air and ground support from the U.S.-led coalition launched an offensive to drive Islamic State from the northern city of Mosul.

Iraqi media says the army and police have moved their military hardware into Shura. The Iraqi forces have also retaken over 20 villages around Mosul. They are said to be pushing towards the city on two main fronts. According to Iraqi commanders, ISIS terrorists have moved residents over a dozen villages to Mosul to use them as human shield.
