Iraqi Special Forces conducted security sweeps along Nabi Jorjis Street in Mosul’s Old City on July 5 and 6 after forcing Islamic State fighters to withdraw from the al-Midan and parts of the al-Shahuan neighborhood. The footage shows Iraqi forces uncovering a large cache of suicide vests, explosives, mortars, and official IS documents amid sporadic gunfire. Unconfirmed reports claim that a suicide bomber prematurely detonated his explosive device in al-Midan, killing 10 nearby IS fighters, in street-to-street clashes on July 6.
