Iraqi forces were consolidating their gains south of Mosul on Tuesday ahead of moving into the city's Islamic State-held western half, a military spokesman said, as civilians fled along the front line to government-controlled areas.
The remarks came on the third day of what is expected to be the definitive push to rout the Islamic State (IS) group from Iraq's second-largest city.
The spokesman of the Joint Military Operation Command, Brigadier General Yahya Rasool, told The Associated Press that nearly 123 square kilometres (about 47 square miles) have been taken south of Mosul since the new push started on Sunday.
The troops now fully control the strategical hill of Abu Saif overlooking Mosul airport as well as the Hamam al-Alil intersection on the main highway into the city, Rasool said.
By noon on Tuesday, about a dozen had civilians fled toward the security forces, some holding white flags.
A group of soldiers moved down from the front to meet the civilians, searching them before bringing them back to base.
Iraq's militarised federal police forces retook Abu Saif village, south of Mosul, from the IS group on Monday night.
Iraqi forces said they were targeted with at least four large car bombs in the small hilltop village, and as many as five other car bombs were destroyed with airstrikes.
Iraqi forces said Abu Saif was almost completely empty when they retook it, but as they push toward western Mosul they will begin encountering more civilians that will make it more difficult to use artillery and airstrikes to clear territory.
Mosul, which is now the last IS group urban stronghold in Iraq, fell into the hands of the extremists in the summer of 2014, when the Islamic State group captured large swaths of northern and western Iraq.
The battle for Mosul, backed by the US-led coalition, has already driven the militants from the eastern half of the city, which is split by the Tigris River.
