jeffusa says():Coalition forces are now just THREE miles from Mosul as the battle to liberate the ISIS stronghold intensifies amid reports of a revolt inside the terror group
Interior minister for the Kurdish regional government said forces are near
He claimed allied forces have already reclaimed 30 villages from ISIS
Reports of a revolt within the terror group with militants refusing to fight
ISIS dug trenches around Mosul which then will light as soldiers approach
By GARETH DAVIES FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 10:37 EST, 22 October 2016
Iraqi forces are closing in on Islamic State's last major stronghold in Iraq and are now just three miles from Mosul amid reports of a revolt within the jihadi group.
The interior minister of the Kurdish regional government Karim Sinjari, who is acting defence minister in the area, said although the battle would not end soon, allied forces have reclaimed 30 villages from ISIS.
He believes there is between 4,000 and 8,000 ISIS fighters in the city ready for war, but that the numbers have dwindled because those refusing to fight have been executed.
In preparation for the onslaught, Sinjari says ISIS have dug enormous tunnels under the city and a trench around it, which they have filled with oil ready to torch when forces come nearer.
Nearly 1,000 people have been treated for breathing problems linked to toxic gases from a sulphur plant which Islamic State militants are suspected to have set on fire near the city of Mosul, hospital sources said on Saturday.
No deaths were reported in connection with the incident, said the sources at the hospital in Qayyara, a town south of Mosul.
The first cases began arriving on Friday morning, they said.
'We have had every type of person come in with breathing problems and burning eyes - children, adults, policemen, soldiers,' said a hospital spokesman.
'Daesh set the sulphur on fire so nobody can come near them.'
A sulphur plant caught fire earlier this week as the Iraqi army dislodged Islamic State fighters from the area of Mishraq, north of Qayyara.
The US military said the militants had deliberately set it on fire.
Progress to liberate the city of Mosul has been steady, but the battle is set to be a big one, according to the interior minister.
'If they resist in the city, especially in old Mosul, it will be a big fight,' he said.
'The roads are very thin, very narrow. You can't have vehicles, you can't have tanks.
'So it will be a fight, person by person.'
Mosul was declared a caliphate for ISIS back in 2014 by their commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who is reportedly in the city with his militants.
The Iraqi city and the Syrian stronghold of Raqqa continues to be their main bases.
'If Mosul is finished the caliphate they announced is finished,' Sinjari said.
'If they lose in Mosul, they will have no place, just Raqqa.
'They will have to go to Syria. They will be surrounded in one area.'
The much-heralded battle to capture Mosul began last week and is expected to be the most important battle fought in Iraq since the US-led invasion in 2003.
Iraq has come a long way since June 2014 when five Iraqi army divisions crumbled as Islamic State swept into Mosul.
Islamic State has been dislodged from other major cities such as Falluja.
That campaign lasted just over one month.
With air and ground support from the US-led coalition, an Iraqi force of about 30,000, joined by US special forces and under US, French and British air cover, is ready to push into Mosul after recapturing Falluja and Ramadi, west of Baghdad, and seizing the Sunni stronghold of Tikrit in central Iraq.
'I think it the fight for Mosul will be longer than Falluja and Tikrit, Mosul is a big city,' Sinjari said.
So far, Kurdish forces have seized 20 villages and the Iraqi army have taken 10, he said.
It is not clear whether Baghdadi, an Iraqi who spent time in a US military jail in Iraq, will risk death or capture and join his fighters in the battle for Mosul, home to more than 1.5 million people.
'According to unconfirmed reports Abu Bakr was in Mosul three days ago,' the Kurdish minister said.
'People saw him visiting fighters and encouraging them. We are not sure he was present, this is information.'
Iraqi forces would not be able to defeat Islamic State without help from the inside, such as informers or spies and cooperation from Sunni tribal groups, said Sinjari.
He said the jihadi group, which comprises former Sunni officers from Saddam Hussein's army, have built underground tunnels and dug a trench around Mosul which they filled with oil to set on fire when the offensive gets closer to the city.
Using the Arabic acronym for ISIS - Daesh - the defence minister claimed there was a revolt within the group, with some jihadis turning their back on the terror group.
'There are many reports that there are elements that have agreed to kill members of Daesh,' said Sinjari.
'Some members of Daesh were killed in the street.
'They don't want Daesh. Some were killed and some left. These are people who have weapons, who carry out attacks in specific areas at night and slip away.'
'There are a lot of people who withdrew from the fight. They executed them.'
The plan from coalition forces, Sinjari said, is to surround Mosul from all sides.
The pressure may prompt Islamic State to become more ruthless, as previous military campaigns against the group suggest.
People who escaped from the jihadists in the town of Hawija paid a heavy price when they were caught on a road, said Sinjari.
'They killed 118 of them,' he said. 'We expect them to take (people for a) human shield, everything is expected from Daesh, he said.
