The US-led coalition against the Islamic State has estimated less than 1,000 fighters of the terror group remain in western Mosul, Iraq, Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman Col. John Dorrian said during a briefing on Wednesday.
The US military, Dorrian added, would have to be prepared to a “very difficult and dangerous” fighting in west Mosul.

Dorrian also said the Iraqi government, not the US-led coalition, would be the one to stabilize the city.

However, US-designated planners, who work closely with the United Nations and non-government organizations, would be there to ensure the non-state actors understand the security situation in the area.
