""The commandos of the Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) are fighting fierce clashes in al-Saha neighborhood and now they are in control of about 70 percent of the neighborhood,"" Staff Maj. Gen. Maan al-Saadi, commander of CTS' special operations, told Xinhua reporters in the western side of Mosul.
The CTS forces managed to kill some 70 IS militants, most of them were foreigners and non-Iraqi Arabs http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-dale-weise-jersey , in the battles during the past two days in the IS stronghold of al-Saha, Saadi said.
""The CTS troops are pushing further into the neighborhood and will recapture the whole neighborhood within one day,"" according to Saadi.
On Friday, Abdul-Amir Yarallah from the Joint Operations Command (JOC) announced a new push into three neighborhoods of al-Saha, al-Zanjili and al-Shifaa, in north of the edge of the old city center.
Iraqi forces, backed by international coalition http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-colin-mcdonald-jersey , have been fighting to drive out IS militant from the western side of Mosul, but several neighborhoods, including the densely-populated old city center, are still under control of the extremist militants.
Earlier on Monday, the Iraqi aircraft dropped thousands of leaflets on the IS-held areas of old city and the neighborhoods of al-Shifaa, al-Zanjili and al-Saha, urging the civilians to leave their homes in the IS-controlled neighborhoods through safe corridors http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-cole-bardreau-jersey , according to a JOC statement.
On May 25, the Iraqi military issued a statement urging the residents of the remaining IS-held neighborhoods to leave their homes through safe corridors.
""We ask all of you to leave and move immediately to the safe corridors that we will set up for you. You will find guides, protection and vehicles to transfer you to safe areas,"" the JOC said in a statement on Thursday.
The government wants to avoid civilian casualties, who have been used by the extremist IS militant as human shields, and in order to pave the way for the security forces to free the rest of the western side of Mosul, according to the statement.
According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-claude-giroux-jersey , the number of civilians remaining in the old city and surrounding neighborhoods cannot be known exactly, but the office estimated 200,000 may leave their homes in the coming days of battles.
""We don't know for sure how many civilians are still in IS-held districts, but as many as 200,000 additional people may try to leave in coming days,"" an OCHA report said on Friday.
According to the Iraqi military, over 90 percent of the city has been retaken from IS in the ongoing major offensive launched in October last year.
Mosul http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-brian-propp-jersey , 400 km north of Iraq's capital Baghdad, has been under IS control since June 2014, when government forces abandoned their weapons and fled, enabling IS militants to take control of parts of Iraq's northern and western regions.

" The first thing I do when a bowler approaches me for advice is to examine the ball he is using-to determine if it is properly fitted to his hand. Proper fit is most important, for a badly fitted ball handicaps any bowler.
If your bowling ball fits properly, your hand does not feel cramped. If the ball doesn't fit http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-brian-elliott-jersey , your hand is not loose and comfortable, and the results at the pin-end of the alley will not be to your liking.
To determine the proper fit for your hand, insert your thumb almost its complete length into the thumb hole of your ball. The thumb hole should be comfortably loose. The hole should be sufficiently large to allow for a slight expansion of your thumb-for the thumb is likely to puff up during a bowling session. The finger holes may be snug.
After you insert your thumb into the ball, lay your hand flat on the surface of the ball, with the fingers extended over the finger holes. The second joint from the end of your finger (or fingers), should extend at least one quarter of an inch beyond the near rim of the finger hole. If your hand is bulky and not too flexible, the second joint should extend to the middle of the finger hole. This extra span allows you to manipulate the ball better.
After you have selected a ball according to the method described http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-brandon-manning-jersey , make a further test to complete your diagnosis. Place your thumb and fingers into the proper holes, pick up the ball, and then insert a pencil into the space between your hand and the ball. If the pencil fits snugly without strain, you are fitted correctly.
When the fit is right, you can carry your ball comfortably up to the foul line. Your hand has a natural feel to it, there is no straining of the thumb or fingers, and you do not squeeze to hold the ball.
You may use either a two or three finger grip. If you have reasonable success with a two-fingered grip http://www.philadelphiaflyersteamstore.com/adidas-bobby-clarke-jersey , stick to it, and vice versa. The proper fit is the important thing.
Bowling shoes are, of course, a prime necessity. One cannot expect, or even hope, to develop correct footwork and timing without them. While most bowlers are aware of the fact, many persons unfamiliar with the sport do not know that bowling shoes are made differently for each foot. The reason .
