The US soldiers were coming from Kuwait, the sources added, pointing that the US soldiers and advisors' figures in Mosul reached to 500 with their combat equipment.
The sources disclosed that agreement was reached between the Iraqi government and the US embassy in Baghdad to "limit" the role of the Popular Mobilization Forces in the main battle, but their participation will be restricted in Telafar and some other parts of the outskirts of the city.
The expected date for starting Mosul battle will be 20 July, 2016, but no confirmation was given by the Iraqi government or commanders.
Earlier, a new military scandal was opened when the details of current military movement were disclosed that led to initiate a high governmental investigation and announcements that the plans of Mosul liberation were changed.
