Iraq's elite counterterrorism forces are deployed in the town of Bartella, Iraq, Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016.
The army is trying to advance from the south and the east while Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are holding fronts in the east and north.

The outer rings of this defense are what the U.S. military calls disruption zones, where IS fighters are expected to counter the Iraqi advance through the use of mortars and rockets, suicide bombers, road obstacles and car bombs. Abadi on Saturday balked at that call, saying his country's own forces will oust Islamic State militants from the city.
He said that while Britain has put tens of millions of pounds into the UN relief effort there has been a "lag" in getting money from some other donors. Loudspeakers on the Humvees blared Iraqi patriotic music as they pushed toward the village.

And driving ISIS out of Iraqi cities doesn't mean the group will disappear. Reports have also emerged that Iraqi army units entered the centre of Qaraqosh, about 20km southeast of Mosul, and are clearing up the explosive-rigged town. The troops are now preparing for their main battle in Mosul, which is being touted as the biggest battle against the terrorist group.
If a new insurgency flares up, Washington might experience a bad flashback.
"There are many reports that there are elements that have agreed to kill members of Daesh".
