In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS militants are shown on the outskirts of the Bakr neighborhood in eastern Mosul allegedly fighting Iraqi Army forces. The opposing forces are never shown in the photographs. An accompanying summary of the photo report reads: "Clips of Clashes on the Outskirts of #Bakr Neighborhood in Eastern #Mosul." Viewer discretion is advised.
