The UN said today that Islamic State group jihadists may be holding more than 100,000 Iraqi civilians as human shields in the Old City of Mosul.
Iraqi forces said they were about to complete the encirclement of Islamic State's stronghold in the Old City of Mosul, after taking control of a neighboring district on Thursday.
Residents attempting to flee IS positions have been gunned down by snipers, while in some cases civilian homes have been welded shut and booby-trapped to prevent them from fleeing.
"There is hardly any food, water, electricity, fuel".
Lise Grande, Humanitarian Coordinator for UN's mission in Iraq said that they are expecting the fight for Old Mosul to begin "within days".
