On March 17, Iraq's Kurdish-language Rudaw television network reported that 237 people had been killed in US-led coalition airstrikes on a Daesh-held neighborhood in western Mosul.
Clashes are expected to continue in the area.
"The federal police penetrated the old city and killed 13 terrorists, and destroyed 7 booby-trapped vehicles of Daesh in the Bab al-Jadid axis towards the al-Nuri Mosque in western Mosul", police commander Maj.
The military also told the people to hide into basements of their houses or to stay in the downstairs of their buildings, if no basement available, when clashes erupt in their neighborhoods, the statement said.
USA -backed Iraqi forces launched an offensive in February to liberate west Mosul from IS fighters who captured the city almost three years ago.
The offensive is part of a wider campaign launched last October to retake the entire city, which ISIL overran in mid-2014.
