Iraqi Forces Storm ISIS-Held Old City of Mosul
If the forces succeed in driving out the militant group from the city it will effectively spell the end of the caliphate in Iraq.
Iraqi forces take a position on the roof of a building as they advance towards Mosul's Old City on June 18, 2017.
The mosque, with its famous leaning minaret, has become symbolic in the Iraqi military’s fight against the militant group, after ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi proclaimed a caliphate from the mosque in July 2014.
