Iraqi forces advanced towards Bab Sinjar in Old Mosul and besieged an Islamic State “headquarters” in the Zanjili neighborhood on June 1, the Iraqi Federal Police <a href="https://www.facebook.com/media1967/videos/640282312831413/" target="_blank">said</a>.

About a dozen civilians were injured by Islamic State mortar shells while fleeing from Zanjili, <a href="http://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-iraq-mosul-idUSKBN18S4KB?il=0" target="_blank">Reuters said, citing Iraqi officials</a>.

Zanjili is one of a few enclaves still under the control of Islamic State in west Mosul, along with the Old City and the Medical City hospitals complex.
