The governor of Nineveh province (Mosul is the administrative center) escaped from captivity and death. Atheel al-Nujaifi said that he had disappeared from the administration building for a few minutes before the rebels broke the resistance of security.
On Monday Nujaifi called for armed resistance to ISIL and to create for this purpose people's committees.
Shiites (according to the sources, up to 5 thousand families) leave the city, local Mosul media reports. Police and army sources reported that the government units are demoralized. The only hope for the forces loyal to the government in Baghdad is the arrival of reinforcements from the capital and other regions of Iraq. Otherwise, according to the administration of Nineveh, Mosul and the whole province may be under the rule of Sunni insurgents within a few days. Almost all the roads to the city are sealed with concrete blocks.
