Footage from the ongoing battle in Mosul shows an Iraqi Mi-28 “Havoc” attack helicopter popping countermeasure flares and firing rockets into suspected ISIS fighting positions. The east side of Mosul has been totally cleared of Da’esh fighters by Iraqi and Kurdish forces. The Western-led coalition just announced the start of combat operations on the west side of the Tigris River to completely liberate the city.
That video was produced by Australia’s ABC News. The same embedded correspondent team also made this next video, showing current ground operations in Mosul.
