The prison systems contained solitary confinement cells and torture rooms.

The small medical clinic was stocked with surgical provisions to treat fighters injured in the violent battle for the Iraqi city that was being waged between the terror group and the advancing central Iraqi army and their allies.

Security forces were engaged in continued clashes in the northern limits of the neighbourhood but were now less than one kilometre from the Tigris river that runs through the heart of the city, Jawdat said.
