Nineveh : Members of the Islamic State extremist group set a maternity hospital and some buildings of the University of Mosul ablaze, before withdrawing from them, BasNews reported on Sunday.
Commander of Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Forces, Abdel Wahab al-Saedi, in a press statement said, “The Islamic State group burned al-Khansa Maternity Hospital, as well as the buildings of faculties of Dentistry, Education, Arts and Economy in the University of Mosul, before withdrawing from them, due to the significant development achieved by security forces in the area.”
So far, Iraqi forces have retaken around 70 percent of eastern Mosul from the Islamic State militants. However, the western half of the city remains under the full control of Islamic State, which is fighting to hold on to its largest stronghold with snipers and suicide car bombs.
