Iraqi military: Two Mosul neighborhoods retaken from Islamic State

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.
