Iraqi special forces began their assault into more urban neighborhoods of Mosul from its eastern most district on Friday, the military's latest push to drive Islamic State (ISIS , ISIL ,IS and Daesh) terrorists from the city.

The advance started with artillery and mortar strikes on the Aden, Tahrir, and Quds districts, just west of Special Forces' footholds in the Gogjali and Karama neighborhoods, Lieutenant Colonal Muhanad al Timimi told The Associated Press.

ISIS responded with mortar fire, he added, kicking off small arms clashes between the two sides. Smoke from artillery strikes rose over the sky.
