On October 17, 2016, Iraqi government forces began the battle to retake the city of Mosul from Daesh fighters. One year later, what is the situation?

“At the end of a lightning offensive carried out between June 4 and 10, 2014, jihadist fighters - several hundred - managed to take control of Mosul, Iraq's second city. Less than three weeks later, on June 28, ISIS proclaimed the "caliphate" over the conquered territories of Syria and Iraq. On July 5, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed “caliph” of ISIS, made his only public appearance filmed in the Al-Nouri mosque in the heart of the old city.
Two years later, on October 17, 2016, Iraqi Prime Minister Haïder Al-Abadi announced the start of the reconquest operation. Since the beginning of 2017, things have accelerated with, on January 18, the liberation of the east bank of Mosul by Iraqi special forces; on February 19, the start of the assault on the western part of the city, and on June 21, the destruction of the Al-Nouri mosque by the jihadists.
