Iraqi troops advanced near the liberated village of Al-Qasr, seven kilometers (4.3 miles) south of Mosul, to capture strategic hilltop positions guarding the southern entry to the besieged city.

The government last month launched a massive campaign to retake Mosul, captured by ISIS terrorist group in 2014. It is the extremist group's last major urban center in Iraq.
