Iraq Mosul Siege

FILE - In this April 20, 2017 file photo, an Iraqi special forces soldier fires at Islamic State militants as smoke from an airstrike billows from the site, in the al-Tanek neighborhood of Mosul, Iraq. In Mosul, Iraqi forces are steadily closing in on remaining pockets of territory held by IS, but unlike past urban battles against them in Iraq, the militants still hunkered down in the city are mounting a stiff resistance, and the more the battle stretches out, the greater the risk for civilians remaining behind.
