“The foreign fighters are stuck,” he explains. “Locals may be able to escape and blend back into society, but foreigners have no choice but to fight to the death.”

Additionally, say soldiers and civilians, foreign fighters in general tend to be more fanatic, as 100 percent of them gave up their homeland and families for IS ideology.

“We are fighting in really close quarters,” says Qasim. “Sometimes we enter a house, clear it, and suicide bombers follow us inside.”…

“But they can’t get any more ammunition,” Sadeek continues optimistically (except for what they have stockpiled).  “They are surrounded.”

For months, IS militants have been pushing civilians into this section of Mosul, most notably neighborhoods called Tamouz 17, which is thought to be the heart of IS support, and Tenek, which locals say could be a point of focus because it is near a large IS bomb and weapon production area.

Families fear the battles in these areas will result in unprecedented IS violence toward civilians, despite military efforts to protect them.

When IS first came to Tenek, explains Mohammad Khalid, a 27-year-old father of three from the area, many residents joined the group.  New IS members treated former friends and neighbors as strangers, to be punished like everyone else if IS rules were broken.

In Tenek, like elsewhere in Mosul, IS became increasingly unpopular and eventually loathed as the group became more violent and strict.  “At the beginning, some people thought they were a real Islamic group,” Khalid explains.    https://www.voanews.com/a/dark-times-ahead-battle-mosul-islamic-state/3796007.html

4-3-17      In the past, foreign countries have effectively supported the insurgency, either by doing nothing or by allowing money to flow.  The war became a proxy for the Shi’ite-Sunni split that now divides Islam as bitterly as the Thirty Years’ War divided Catholics and Protestants in the 1600s.  Without outside support, this catastrophic war could never have continued for as long as it has.  It is, however, finally drawing to a close (in the main parts of Iraq).   http://www.smh.com.au/comment/mosul-is-falling-this-is-the-end-of-the-caliphate-in-iraq-20170403-gvcb4i.html
