Iraqi troops including elite counter terrorism forces resumed an offensive on the eastern front of Mosul on Monday, a military statement said, targeting the eastern bank of the Tigris river which divides the northern Iraqi city.

The elite counter terrorism unit had paused its advance last week after it made ground quicker than forces on other fronts, to allow them to close the gap.
