Daesh terrorist group stopped payment of monthly wages to its fighters in Iraq's second-largest city of Mosul, amid Iraqi government forces continued its offensive, according to local media; Sputnik reported.

The terrorists are now reportedly smuggling families out of the city for bribes to replenish resources.

The operation to liberate Mosul, in the northern Iraqi province of Nineveh, from the Daesh, outlawed in Russia and many other countries, began on October 17, 2016. Iraqi troops managed to advance in the eastern part of the city, but the western part — on the right bank of the Tigris River — is under militant control.
