The progress of the Golden Division on the eastern side of Mosul is getting convoluted. On November 3 it was reported that it had entered the Intisar neighborhood of Mosul along with a Rapid Intervention Force brigade. Two days before there was news that area had been freed. Likewise the unit reached Karama and Samah when both of those areas were supposedly entered before and Samah liberated. Likewise, there was still fighting going on in the outskirts of Gogjali, another town said to be liberated.
