Mosul is the second largest city in the Middle Eastern nation of Iraq. It`s also a stronghold of the ISIS terrorist group, which took over Mosul in 2014. Defeating ISIS here would be a major setback to the terrorist but it`s not easy. There may be only a few thousand ISIS fighters left in Mosul, but they`re using tunnels, roadside bombs, explosive traps and guerilla warfare in the fight.

摩苏尔是中东国家伊拉克第二大城市。同时也是恐怖组织伊斯兰国的大本营,2014年伊斯兰国占领了摩苏尔。击败摩苏尔的伊斯兰国组织是一项难题,并不容易。尽管摩苏尔滞留的伊斯兰国武装分子只剩下数千人,但是在作战中他们使用隧道、炸弹、爆炸陷阱以及游击作战方式。

They’re up against force of tens of thousands. Iraqi troops supported by Americans and allied airpower, plus, ethnic Kurdish fighters known as the Peshmerga. They’re all working to push ISIS out.

这些武装分子要对抗的是上万军队。伊拉克部队获得了以美国为首的空军联盟的支持,此外还有库尔德战士。他们共同努力驱逐伊斯兰国武装分子。

The battle for Mosul has been going on since October. It was expected to take months and it is. The reasons why are clear in the struggle to take over one key part of the city.

争夺摩苏尔的战争自去年十月就一直在上演。当时人们预测战争可能要持续数个月,事实也的确如此。在战争中清楚的是要占领城市的要塞。

Day four, and perhaps the biggest push yet from the north into the plains around Mosul. Trying to dislodge the determined and deranged remnants of ISIS, but the Peshmerga backed with staggering air power.

在第四天,最大的推动力来自于摩苏尔周围平原北部的力量。同时还有惊人的空中力量,试图驱逐伊斯兰国残余的武装。

But now common sight of American special forces, who the Pentagon says are advising, not assaulting position in front of the attack. The work was slow, destructive. Begging the question, what becomes of the wreckage under new masters?

但是,美国特种部队,美国五角大楼建议,不要攻击前面的部队。这项任务是缓慢的、破坏性的。那么问题是,在新的领导下,谁将会成为失败者呢?

Suddenly, in the sky, a hail of bullets. They’ve spotted a drone. Trace rounds dance around it and finally take off its nose.

突然,天空中飞来无数的子弹。他们发现了一个无人机,环视飞行,最后飞机的鼻子被打落了。

ISIS used them to spot targets for artillery, even drop small bombs.

伊斯兰国使用这些无人机来射击大炮,甚至投掷小型炸弹。

Yet progress down the road in Khorsabad is agonizingly slow.

豪尔萨巴德的进攻进程非常的缓慢。

ISIS used them to spot targets for artillery, even drop small bombs. This one tumbles down. Its wreckage picked over. It`s still unclear whose it is.

Yet progress down the road is Khorsabad is agonizingly slow.
