ISIL fighters launched ferocious counter-attacks on Saturday in territory Iraqi special forces captured in Mosul's eastern edges, highlighting the tough battle ahead as troops push into densely populated neighbourhoods. Fighters from the armed group emerged from deeper in the city to target Iraqi soldiers with mortars and suicide car bombs. They also attacked the southern edge of the Gogjali district, which Iraqi forces declared "liberated" earlier this week, pushing back some gains. Street battles continued with both sides firing mortar rounds and automatic weapons at each other's positions, while Iraqi troops also responded with artillery. Clashes were most intense in the al-Bakr neighbourhood.
