Between 19 January and 25 February 2017, most observed damage has occurred in the left bank (western Mosul), where retaking operations have taken place. More specifically, two residential areas to south of right bank, which have been the main site of clashes between ISF and ISIL, have suffered heavy damage. Damaged buildings identified by satellite imagery only identifes severely damaged buildings.
For that reason, the amount of damaged buildings is likely higher than the amount indicated on this map.

Due to the latest disruptions, as of 25 March 2017, most of the both the right and the left bank areas have no electricity. While ISIL is retreating, it has booby-trapped many of the important stations with improvised explosive devices (IEDs), including the 400 KV station which supplies 20% of Mosul’s energy. Other substations are currently mostly out of operation because of a lack of required resources (oil, gas).

Between 25 March and 30 March 2017, most observed damage has occurred in the right bank (western Mosul), where airstrikes have heavily hit residential neighbourhoods. More specifically, the Old City and Mosul Al-Jadeda, have suffered heavy damage. Specifically, Mosul Al-Jadeda has seen an additional 125 heavily damaged or completely destroyed residential buildings since 25 March. Only severely damaged and completely destroyed buildings can be identifed with satellite imagery. For that reason, the amount of damaged buildings is likely higher than the amount indicated on this dashboard.
