Mosul was captured by ISIS along vast swathes of territory in northern and western Iraq in 2014.

Earlier Sunday, Iraqi forces battling ISIS militants reached the Tigris riverbanks in the Old City of Mosul.

Since October, the Iraqi forces, backed by a U.S.-led air coalition, have been trying to dislodge ISIS from Mosul, the terrorist group's last stronghold in northern Iraq.
