New post in new thread. Mosul campaign day 75, 2nd day of official restart of operations. Very little movement and all the fighting is over areas already freed or entered in east Mosul.

Did my year end total for casualties reported in Iraq in 2016. Came out to 24,079 dead and 39,166. Because of govt censorship of its losses the real figures are much higher.

Worth reading: 'Baghdad Doesnít Want You to Know How Many of Its Soldiers Are Dying' and for the unit at the front in Mosul:

The problem is, the constant fighting is bleeding dry the Golden Division. A Pentagon source told Politico that Iraqi Special Operations Forces ďare suffering upwards of 50-percent casualties. The division could become combat ineffective in a little over a month, and perhaps even sooner".
