Should have done what donald said and gone in silent! without announcement!

Special forces meet fierce resistance from ISIL fighters who attack in the east with suicide car bombs and sniper fire.

ISIL fighters launched ferocious counter-attacks on Saturday in territory Iraqi special forces captured in Mosul's eastern edges, highlighting the tough battle ahead as troops push into densely populated neighbourhoods.

Fighters from the armed group emerged from deeper in the city to target Iraqi soldiers with mortars and suicide car bombs. They also attacked the southern edge of the Gogjali district, which Iraqi forces declared "liberated" earlier this week, pushing back some gains.
