But "the final neighbourhoods will be the most hard to recapture, especially the Old City and the remaining neighbourhoods in northwestern Mosul", Martin said.

Military officers state that this it is predicted as Iraqi forces attempt to reclaim Mosul in what is known as the last major urban hurdle towards defeating extremist Sunni militant groups in Iraq.

Iraqi forces began the country's biggest military operation in years exactly six months ago and recaptured the east side of the city in January.

Paris attack likely terrorism: Hollande
French President Francois Hollande said he was convinced the circumstances of the attack in a country pointed to a terrorist act. ISIS has claimed it was behind the shooting and named the attacker as Abu Yusuf al Beljiki, suggesting he was a Belgian.

They also announce that the targeted location was in fact a "fighting position" for Syrian Democratic Forces, who are allies in the US mission to fight the Islamic State.

"Daesh (Islamic State) suicide motorcycles now are their favourite weapon inside the Old City", he said. "We have to watch every single house to avoid attackers on motorcycles packed with explosives", he added.

Iraqi security forces have faced a counter-attack for most of Thursday in central areas of western Mosul near the Bab al-Baid neighborhood, according to a Rudaw correspondent in Mosul, where people are believed to have been executed for fleeing.
