6:57 PM ADMIN
The sources said that Da'ish organization does not trust its Iraqi supporters, so it decided to depend on its foreign personnel.
"Da'ish is expected to send more troops to assist its fighters in besieged areas in Qayara areas, in particular.
The sources expected that the total figure of those entrusted to defend the city will not exceed one thousand fighters, with no Iraqis among them.
Da'ish organization is currently concentrating on digging trenches, with more fortifications inside the city to avoid the air raids of the US-led international coalition.
The Iraqi army is heading for the city, but "slowly", with expectations that the battle will be over by the end of this year, according to military sources
