Iraq's military said on Wednesday it had retaken two more neighborhoods from Islamic State in Mosul's Old City, bringing it closer to total control of the city.

Hadarat al-Saada and al-Ahmadiyya are northwest of the historic Grand al-Nuri Mosque, which the militants destroyed last week. Islamic State is still in control of the mosque's ground.
