Our sources say that 25 ISIL gunmen were killed yesterday in airstrikes on the Zummar, Badush, and Eski Kelek areas. Meanwhile, drones are continuing their flights over Mosul, and the citizens there are welcoming the advances being made by central government security forces and the Kurdish Peshmerga in Rabi'a and Zummar.
However, the people of Mosul are fearful of possible reprisals, should Mosul be liberated. These fears are being stoked on Facebook, with warnings of reprisals against Mosul residents, by the Yazidis for example. Most likely is that ISIL is behind these warnings and allegations.
