The operation to liberate the Iraqi city of Mosul after more than two years of brutal ISIS rule is going faster than expected, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Thursday, after Peshmerga fighters opened a new front from the north , tightening the circle around their target.
An Iraqi-led coalition of forces launched the operation to free Mosul on Monday with more than 100,000 people closing in on the strategic city, seen as the cultural capital of ISIS's envisaged caliphate, or so-called Islamic State.
Peshmerga forces now clearing the ISIS-held Christian village, Batnaya, about 20 kilometers north of Mosul, local TV reports say

Forces have faced fierce resistance in some pockets, coming under heavy gunfire and suicide bomb attacks, but overall the operation has made sweeping gains, apparently freeing dozens of villages in districts around Mosul.
"The fighting forces are currently pushing forward toward the town more quickly than we thought and more quickly, certainly, than we had established in our planned campaign," Abadi said, according to a translation, via teleconference to a ministerial-level meeting on Mosul in Paris.
