Over 4,000 ISIS terrorists are expected to fight to the death. ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a caliphate there in 2014. Since then it has been under ISIS control.The city has been encircled with minefields and filled moats with oil to create a ring of fire.

Addressing the nation, Mr Abadi said: "The time of victory has come and operations to liberate Mosul have started. "Today I declare the start of these victorious operations to free you from the violence and terrorism of Daesh."

The US said it was proud to stand with its allies shortly after Mr al-Abadi fired the starting gun on the attack.
