Being the Sox bias including. ABBA songs brother and father who live in Jerusalem as well. Okay Alex let's move on to the to create offensive we understand Iraqi forces have taken over key portions of the city but it seems. That ice is fighters may be still holding out in some areas. Yeah battle isn't over yet this is balanced and raging for about a week now and what we understand is that Iraq. Iraqi forces soldiers at least as well that's bullish says. And Shiite militias Sunni tribes and altogether attacking this city attacked and prices positions from the north south east and west we understand. They are making a round but that ice is still control bulls Center City. It's been relatively slow going there are ice is as booby trapped building it right he's on the side roads got snipers in the buildings. I'll innocent Iraqi forces or for me to treat military hospitals and police stations that are within view some of the palaces of president. Saddam Hussein so this is not over yet at the moment he certainly is on the side of the Iraqi forces. These statements from our military officials there are stated that they don't it's night or be speed air or Friday prayers. This is an extremely important battle extremism all not just because it's Saddam Hussein's hometown. But this is wonder. Iraq's major cities. If if hearings and take it back.

We understand. More of its fighting force there they are and and biased by a wrong. Arms to Iran clearly planet very big role here. As I say it's hard to tell exactly who is. General were that many officers are to its senses. But the Iranians certainly playing a big role in the race all sorts of questions about the potential for sectarianism.
